ive just brought this setup

and would love some thoughts and ideas as what to plant in it. i was loking to have some sort of carpeting plant in the foreground, some rocks/ wood with moss in the middle and somthing larger at the back i also want to put some cherry shrimp in it at some point
Ive also been reading it might be better to swap the diffuser that comes with it for a smaller glass/ ceramic one. any views?
 
thanks in advance

Lovely little tank. I think it would great with a nano piece of wood, some moss carpeting, a couple of nice plants and a handful of cherry shrimp :)
 
No idea about the CO2 system that comes with it. I used a Fluval 88 which comes with a ceramic diffuser.

I think shrimp would look great in a tank like that. Maybe some mosses, and a little branch of wood.

I'm growing US Fissidens moss in mine as a foreground as mats, specifically because it's so slow growing. flame moss is also beautiful and and be trimmed like a carpet

I may have a bit of a move around, just wanted to get them in really so they can start establishing themselves

I like it. The more plants the merrier to me though. Have you decided on the stocking? I know you mentioned shrimp. Still going with them?
