hey
tank is looking very nice.
you may find empty shells from the shrimp if they are growing,
they are fun to watch is you feed them pellets,they usually steal them
and run away.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
