Good luck with the CRS tanks. Aside from mosses, I think hygros are the ideal plant for a CRS tank; they don't require much care and they absorb their fair share of nitrates. I've learned the hard way that a CRS tank shouldn't be too densely planted. It makes cleaning and keeping track of them a real hassle.
i do have more pics, and trust me, it breaks my heart to do it since i've dedicated so much time to get them that big, my smallest one was 5.5" and everyone else was at least a 6 incher. here are some random pics of when i had them all:

that's when they were a tad younger. i still had my domestic brown then

and this was my Penang Eruption which was one of the first to sell on CL for $75! She was a beaut and had intense pattern. i can't believe i sold her so cheap, she was 6.5"
