A few months ago I talked to someone that told me that Amano uses a ton of shrimp in the first few weeks of the tank set up. The number was at least 3 shrimp per gallon.
What do you think about overstocking the tank with the "cleaning crew" animals in the first few weeks until the plants take hold?
I was watching AGA tape from AGA'01 and enjoyed Amano's work on 75gallon he aquascaped in TN. One of the questions was:

How many Otocinclus cats would you use in this 75gallon setup ??

He responded: Around 50 or more

Sounds like he is using generous amount.
