Once the Fissidens is ready for a trim (which will be a while) I'll be adding it to the right front and side. I may just take some Fissidens from my Mini M to speed up the process.

Thanks Rob. The tank and thread will probably still be going in 2015.

Thank you chew.

Regular microsword is too big for a 2.5G foreground. Do they also sell mini microsword? Mini microsword tends to grow to 1" in height.

A couple of new pictures of my female CPO. She is a friendly little bugger as she likes to climb onto my hand and even get a petting.

The scape itself is doing very well, as to be expected. The black background has been removed as I felt it took away the appearance of depth. Filter has been moved to the left side so it is basically out of sight. The RRF will likely completely melt away, which I'm not sad about as I definitely prefer how the scape looks without it.

Added some RRF and moved the Fissidens that was on the right side to the center. I prefer the scape without the RRF but I'll see how it fills it.

Also added a stainless steel prefilter.

She is a funny one. CPO's have a lot of personality, it seems.

Your images are sharp, and I think the beauty of your scape is well received through them. Now that you have a low maintenance scape you can sit back and relax!
Thanks and I'm glad you enjoyed the journal.

Notice the single Aquasoil pebble on her head - it fools all the shrimpies.

The male Amano shrimp climbed out a day after the last update. The female has been quite happy as she is well fed. Besides eating, she enjoys digging holes.
