    Wood, plants, and dried leaves all offer good shelter for shrimp. My cherries always hang out on the driftwood and eat the biofilm on it, they also pick at the dried oak leaves I put in for them.

    Plant will always be appreciated, moss balls, java moss and other fine leafed plants are great.

    I found focusing mainly on ground cover works great for my ghost Shrimp.
    What kind of shrimp are you getting?

    I attempted to make several coconut houses from fresh coconuts and ended up also with some broken off quarters or smaller pieces. I still let some of them to just sit on the bottom of the tank just for decoration. Maybe it could provide also bit hiding to shrimps? Just an idea :)

    Java moss, coconut shell, bamboo sections (dried), cholla wood, ceramic pots and tubes, leaf litter, coffee mugs, piles of stones, and PVC pipe.
