Also they love plants, fake or not because they can hide their. A good plant for them is java moss .

i would still suggest you get java moss, java moss are hardy plants and shrimp use it the same way a bird uses a nest.

Can you get java moss at your LPS? Is it hard to maintain? I don't really know anything about java moss and the aquarium Would it be okay if that was the only actual living plant? I don't really intend to have any live plants in this aquarium, but if java moss is easy, maybe:)

yes, java moss is very popular and is high in demand. They require very little maintanance. Since they are the only plant in your aquarium, you wont need a co2 unit. They also dont have roots so they dont need fertilizer or a specially made gravel. The only downside of this plant is that it grows quite fast and you might need to give some away every few months. And they can spred to your filter even clogging it. Just as long as you check the filter every month and clean it you wont have a problem of filter clogs

well if that's the only down side, I can deal with it.
As long as I don't need any special/extra equipment, I'm happy.

and it doesnt taste good so no fish will eat it. It also provides hiding spots for baby fry and eats ammonia, nitrite and nitrates.
