Cherry Shrimp LOVE Marimo Balls. They groom the algae off them. Anubias is also a slow growing but easy care plant. A good light (10w cool cfl is good) and ocasional dose (maybe every week or 2) of Flrish Coprehensive Suplament will keep them healthy.
When it comes to substrate, you don't want anything that could roll over and crush them or that they could get a foot caught in. This makes sand a good choice.
Calcium depends on their food and water. If the water has a hardness of at least 70 mg/l, it's fine. Lower than that, and they need a calcium suplament in the water. Varry foods between good algea wafers and sinking pellets which will give them enough calcium in their diet. You can also occasionally throw in some fresh veggies. Make sure their pellets and waffers are copper free (BAD for inverts) and have good ingrediants.
