im hoping to get my hands on some flame moss, would love some for my shrimp but if i cant get some or if its too expensive, what are some other plants that will help the shrimp?
ive read the slower growing plants/mosses are good as they will help the small shrimp.

oh and this is for a 5.5g so hieght might be an issue, lighting im not too worried about but would like something that isnt too needy for nutrients.

P. Helferi doesn't get high at all and it constantly has shrimp all over it. Any of the small anubias should also work.

a bit old, but Shrimps enjoy grazing on stuff- and many plants are too difficult to graze on. Most mosses work well, and Riccia Fluitans(crystalwort) are good grazing plants.
