4G BiOrb Shrimp tank???

Ok, so I'm addicted to fish and aquariums! I'm new to the hobby and can't get enough. Anyways, I found a 4G biOrb at PetSmart that is priced to clear at 19.99. Considering that it was originally $60, I think it's a great deal! I know stocking is small for a 4G tank, but I'm thinking of doing an all shrimp tank. I thought about getting some moss or some other type of plant (ideas?) and some shrimp. I've never had shrimp before, so how many can I put in a 4G, and how many and what species should I get? Can u mix species together?

If your looking to breed shrimp then RCS is the way to start. You can do about 8-10ish and as long as you keep stable water and temps in the 70's, they'll readily breed. In a 4 gal I wouldn't add any other types of shrimp, keep it at RCS personally.
75g Planted Barbs Denison, BlackRuby, Tiger, Albino Tiger, Green Tiger, Cherry, Gold, Checkered, Odessa.
NonBarbs Cardinal, Neon, RummyNose, Bloodfin Tetras, Z. Danios. 1RTS. Amano, Bamboo, Ghost & RCS. 20g Long Shrimp Tank RCS, Tiger, Amano.
