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.

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!

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

Thanks and I'm glad you enjoyed the journal.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
