Once you know what baby shrimp look like, they won't be too hard to find if you are looking for them. When they first hatch they'll be clear white, and then they'll color up in the first day or so.

With BV you'll see the babies turn reddish, and then start to grow blue, and by juvie age the red color will be fading away.

Moss never hurt any shrimp. heh I like to put moss in my back corner and leave the rest of the tank free so I can keep a close eye on my shrimp. The babies will start hanging on the glass to eat any algae food/biofilm.

Then again, I have to pay close attention for selection, and so I don't have a planted tank.
