Hello, I am wondering what I should plant in this future shrimp tank. It’s a five gallon tank. I want to use plants I have in other tanks, but I’m not sure what’s best. I really want to do some dwarf hair grass because the light is so strong. I have some in a 20 gallon but it is shaded under a ton of hornwort. The only reason it’s growing, I think, is because their is a window that gives the tank direct sunlight for a couple hours in the morning. Anyways, should a get a carpet going and add hornwort later? I also have Anubias and vallisnera availible.

Shrimp do best with dense plants that they can hide in.  Of the ones you listed the hornwort and dwarf hairgrass would probably be best.  I don't think it matters which order you add them, but someone else might feel differently.

I wouldn't put vallisneria in a tank that small.
