    I think the rams may eat your shirmp, not sure what else you have in the tank tho.

    What kind of shrimp were you considering?

    A few near the front and in each corner would be good.

    My yellow shrimp I just bought I was told I have adult size and some juvies and my adults are small. About half the size of a full grown ghost shrimp if that gives you an idea.

    I would say add what you like to make the tank what you want. Personally Im really a fan of live plants over fake ones but thats just me. Id say you can handle a few more easily and still make it look fantastic.

    i think you should add sme green plants next to the red ones behind that rock in the back left corner. that looks empty to me. try and add some green ones. if you dont like it, move or remove themXD
