I'm working on my first scape for a low light shrimp tank. I understand what you mean about not worrying about composition, enjoy the break!
Thanks for the kind words.
I used two mosses in this tank, weeping moss and taiwan. The weeping is on the wood. It grows down and looks cool on wood. The taiwan tends to grow up, so i used this on the rocks right behind the sand.
The break has been cool. With the help of Max, i have been learning a lot about growing some more difficult species. It has been very challanging and i still have a long way to go. Hopefully by the time i do the next layout in a few months, i should have some more knowlege to apply.
Good luck on your shrimp tank. I have seen some really cool low tech layouts. IMO, anubias and moss always look good, and then can be used for low tech.
