Wow! That's really nice! :D
What kind of light does it require?
If it's a lower-light plant, I'd love to buy some from you! ^^

UPDATE: I returned the White Ribbon plants for a full refund (yay!) and I'm meeting with someone later on today who's willing to give me some Jungle Val, Hornwort, and aquatic plant fertilizer for $10!

Haha, we'll see! Hopefully I won't inadvertantly kill everything! ^^;

Careful with the shrimp, I did that in a 10 gallon with half of one jumbo shrimp and my ammonia went through the roof! I don't recommend it these days, since I got the ammonia so high it probably killed the darn bacteria, anyway. If it's a heavily planted NPT, I wouldn't bother with the shrimp.

Yep- I took them out after the first morning's water came out really cloudy and everything, but they're dead, fermenting shrimp sitting in a plastic bag next to the tank until I can decide what to do with them! XD

I wouldn't sacrifice a poor little shrimp (no matter how scary they are) for my attempts to cycle a tank! (Or would I? )

Haha, nope, I wouldn't.

Since I'm awaiting my API freshwater master test kit to come from Ebay, I took the shrimp out just in case~

Cool Update!

Da-da-da-DAAAAAA!!!

Behold the updated tank!

Really, all I did was return the white ribbon plants and replace them with Jungle Val and floating Hornwort... XD

Much better plant selection, ja? What do you think? ^^
