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.

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.
