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.

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.

Great look with the nana-petite. This is a completely under-rated ground cover from the look of your tank.
Also neat to see such a long progression. Best of luck, I hope to see this thread in 2015

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.

I have never seen your thread before and found it very fun to read through, you have done a good job at chronicling the development and transitions of your tank. Java moss is pesky, I myself have vowed to never use it again due to it's invasive abilities!
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!

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.
The CPO molted today. To protect herself from the RCS, she has camouflaged herself using the surroundings, as can be seen in this picture:
Notice the single Aquasoil pebble on her head - it fools all the shrimpies.

Amano full of eggs. How cute.

I just realized I haven't changed out the fixture's bulb since sometime in 2010. I have a new one in storage but with the low-light plants that I have in the tank, I'm thinking it would be best to keep the old bulb to avoid algae. New bulbs tend to give me GSA on the glass.
I may be getting some Red Root Floaters for this tank so I guess I'll change out the bulb if the RRF works out.
On that note, do you guys think adding RRF is a good idea? It might destroy the scape's sense of scale. Hmm.
2-8-13 Update #2:
This might be the last picture I take using the ol' point-and-shoot camera.
I'll be adding a lovely stainless steel prefilter to the intake next week (from h4n, of course). In the meantime, the window screen works well, despite its ugly appearance.
And I've added seven RCS as a clean up crew. The Amano shrimp don't do as well of a job as RCS, at least in my case.
