Excel would be a good idea. Aside from just being good for your plants it will help against algae and for a small tank one bottle will last a while. I get almost a year on my 20gal dosing every other...

Put the clay or dolomite mixed in with the dirt before you cap it. Plants utilize clay through their roots more so than from the water column.
