Just so you know, Ghost Shrimp don't eat algae (much anyway) they prefer to eat what fish eat. That's good if you want a scavenger to clean extra fish food out of your tank. If you want a shrimp to keep your little tank clear of algae try a couple/few Amanos. Also, you might consider that Ghost Shrimp should be at a ratio of about 1 adult per gallon or they may get aggressive with one another. You might want to do a bit of research, but I don't think you'll have that problem with Amano Shrimp.

You also might consider one or two bamboo shrimp in your 10g. They're a bit on the expensive side as far as shrimp go. You would just want to make sure that they would be okay with the barbs though. I have 2 of them in my tank and they are awesome to watch. I call them "Dot" and "Dash".

So... what're you going to do with that 1.5g jar? If you're like me, it will need to have something living in it even though you got the little tank.

i still think a group of mosses would look good or you could try a carnivoros aqatic plant....bladderwort it eats small creatures like dapnia via small bladders that trap and digest its prey its a fern like plant with lots of different species that gains most of its nutrition from its prey it also flowers
SpringBoard Magazine Carnivourous Plants - types of plants that eat insects.

something different

Daisycutter, do these plants require live food or can they be fed frozen or freeze dried food?

The daphnia don't have much meat. Maybe no one will notice. lol

Bamboo shrimp that I've seen (I live in Portland, Oregon) vary in pricing. I've seen as much as $12.99 at one lfs. I also just saw ones for $6.99 each at a Petco in Vancouver WA. I did find mine at a small fish store for I think $6.99 or $8.99. I brought them home and within an hour they turned from drab brown/gray to a brilliant orange and have stayed that way. I wasn't so impressed with the Petco shrimp, but I've noticed fish/shrimp/snails becoming brilliantly beautiful when they're in a good environment getting a wide variety of foods. So you never know.

My bamboo shrimp sit on one of my big plants right in the outflow of the filter. Since they're filter feeders, they do best in a well established tank because they need to catch very small particles of matter in their little feathery hands.

Have fun!
