The photos look great! I hope you have luck with the Taiwanese moss...I have had no luck growing it, it gets covered by black algae and gets smothered...my other plants are fine though!

Love the lighting effect!

Is that the Fluval shrimp substrate?

Will you be re-adding the shrimp?

Was the moss wall growing in too slowly for you?

don't worry, just diatoms...sign of unestablished nitrogen cycle.
the brown stuff will go away on its own after 3 weeks.
Or...put in an otocinclus, it'll clean the tank spotless.

What is that grass like plant? Is it easy to grow? Does it require CO2?

nice tank.

The grass like plant is Eleocharis parvula or maybe eleocharis acicularis.

they show their best in medium/high light and CO2. without CO2 or with less light they will survive but will grow very slow and as it is a fine leaved plant, slow growth would mean algae accumulation (depends on tanks parameter).

DIY co2 will work good with it as it is not a CO2 hog.
