    -1 Amazon Sword
    -1 Amazon Dwarf Sword
    -2 Java Ferns
    -1 Anubias Nana
    -1 Hornwort
    -In-progress carpet of Monte Carlo

    -A few jungle or corkscrew vals
    -Java Moss
    -And of course I'm hoping all my plants will propagate a lot and fill up the tank more

    Depending on your lighting, you might try a dwarf sword. They grow easy and fast, but don't get to 20" tall like a full size Amazon Sword. I'm using mine as a midground plant.

    1 anubias (anubias barteri)
    1 java fern mat (microsorum pteropus)
    4 stems of water wisteria (hygrophila difformis)
    7 stems of brazilian pennywort (hydrocotyle leucocephala)
    1 dwarf lily (nymphaea rubra)
    1 marimo moss ball (aegagropila linnaei)

    They are all low-light, easy plants that I keep in my 10g without co2 or ferts!

    EDIT: didn't see the second part about shrimp, but I'm sure shrimp would love them too :p

    Heh, my apologies. Just realized you're asking about shrimp tanks. Mine has just about everything but shrimp. Still. Good plants :D

    Wisteria. They love it. It's their favorite. Aside from Java moss. I have many others but they love hiding there
