    I'm looking to add more shrimp friendly plants to my tank. They're all attached to wood so looking for something similar.

    I've looked at ones from the anubias and crypts families but have read mixed reviews on their compatability with shrimp. Are they truly harmful?

    Should add I already have java fern and a Marino moss ball as well as two other species of plant. The other two the shrimp don't seem to eat or interact with.

    get a clump of java moss and wrap it around a piece of driftwood the shrimp love the biofilm that forms on it

    So is it a no for the anubias?

    It's not purely a shrimp tank and the new prices I've seen that I'm interested in have this species on them :)
