Wink 3 Gallon Planted Tank - Updating.... :)

Hi - I have a new planted 3 gallon tank.

It is a (Picotope 3 Gallon Aquarium Kit)
-Replaced stock Light with a Homemade DIY 5x cree XR-E 6500K Q5 LED. (running it at 700ma with a buckpuck driver)
-Stock crappy Filter
-25 watt heater
-Digital Thermometer
-Paintball Co2 (running 1 bubble every 2 seconds)
-Air pump turns on for 10 mins a day after lights and co2 are off. (helps to clean up surface build up)

Currently growing the following...
-Java Moss
-Flame Moss
-Marimo Ball

No more room - so tried hanging the grid to see how it does
