 Dude  dont  spending  anything  for  substrate  ..  you  already  said  your  gonna  grow  only  ...  java  moss  and  fern...  
 prepare  a  moss  wall  and  make  that  as  the  base  ...  shrimps  will  love  it  ..
 
 stones  and  driftwoods  are  add-ons  where  you  tie  the  ferns...  
 
 good  luck  !   Thumb Up

 for  java  moss  and  ferns   probably  you  can  go  without  co2,  i'll  suggest  you  to  go  for  a  dark  colour  substrate  because  shrimps  show  better  coloration  i  darker  substrate.  if  possible  try  investing  aqua  soil  because  the  lower  the  ph  of  the  tank  thus  providing  the  shrimps  a  more  favorable  environment(thus  better  coloration.  i  have  found  that  RCS  growing  in  my  ADA  Amozonia  setup  shows  better  coloration  than  those  that  are  housed  in  inert  substrate)
