New Shrimp Tank

Hi, I just started a new 10g shrimp tank. I currently only have 3 crystal red shrimp, and a moss ball in there. I was wondering how many dwarf shrimp I can fit in there (thinking of getting some RCS and maybe amanos) and what plants I should plant. Thanks!

The tank can support dozens of shrimp, the plants will depend on your lighting.

Shrimp love java moss. I have a hunk of java moss tied onto a piece of wood. Right now it is loaded with pregnant shrimp and babies. The love to climb through it and pick it clean. Plus java moss is as low maintenance as you can get.
