Small post trim update. I trimmed all the Rotala and removed some microswords that were spreading out of their corner. I probably should have removed more since they spread so fast. I didn't want to trim the fissidens again yet until I get a scissor that will work better.
Also I got a new shrimp from my LFS the other day and I'm not sure what it is. It came from the same tank as the orange neo I got where they also had a label for crystal shrimp. But it doesn't look like either one. It looks to me like a snowball shrimp maybe, but I'm not sure. If anyone can ID it for me from the blurry picture below I'd appreciate it.
Post-trim FTS (ignore my filthy glass)
Here's the new shrimp. Please tell what kind it is. sorry for the blurry pic

Here are some pre-trim pictures I took the other day. I'm going to post post trim pictures tomorrow. I thought I had one of the new shrimp in this batch but I was wrong. I'll be sure to get one tomorrow. and how enjoy
I haven't posted one that shows scale in awhile
Here's one with the diffuser still in I usually take it out for pics
And one of the gouramis I've grown rather fond of these little guys

or have that cloudy look that some can have. hopefully someone will see this and know. The depth to it, plus your landscaping adding to that depth is amazing though.

The color issues mentioned may be the glass...
I love the landscaping.
I checked out this thread last week thinking the cube may be the same I had on order online. Is it the Hagen/Marina cube they advertise for bettas that comes with a light blue acrylic top and a very poor LED light?
If so, the color issues mentioned above may be due to the actual glass. I put my wabi kusa in one last night and tried 3 different lights and could not figure out why my plant ball suddenly looked "sickly" to me, esp. the red plants. I eventually just left the light on that I had had over the original vase over it.
Tonight I remembered your thread. I took off the blue top and that helped matters as even with the hole for the light I was getting some light seeping thru the lid onto the plants.
Then I just put it all back in the original 5 dollar vase and voila! instant color makeover back to vibrant green, etc. Mine, at least, seemed to have some tint to the glass that was making the colors look funky to me. I will be sending it back. However, loved the size, the depth, and the price. Anyone know where I can find something similar??? sigh. Even nano setups can be such money pits .

|mosspearl||Amazing tank. I keep measuring out six inches so I can wrap my head around how small it really is. Great job!|

Looking sweet bud! Yup, those tiny spaces are hard to trim.
Keep the photos coming.

Here are a some post trim pictures. I did a pretty conservative trim because trimming this tiny space is even more difficult than I expected. I'm definitely going to have to find a scissor or better suited for the job.
And here are a couple bonus pics of the inhabitants terrified and hiding after I was trimming
