Default Fluval Spec 5Gal/19L

This is my first planted tank. I am hoping to create a planted tank for Shrimp and other dwarf In-Mates

So far here is the kit that I have:

Tank: Fluval Spec 5Gal/ 19L

Heater: Fluval compact aquarium heater (To go inside the filter area)

CO2: AquaGro CO2 Pro set

Soil: Tetraplant Complete Substrate (2cm layer on base of tank)

Substrate: Fluval Stratum for shrimp (layer on top of Tetraplant substrate)

Lighting: Stock light for now, will look into upgrading the lighting

Ground cover plants: Hemianthus Callitrichoides 'Cuba'

Bog wood plants: Star Moss, Spiky Moss

In-mates: Possibly starting with Shrimp

I will post photos and thoughts as I go along with the build. Hopefully I will get some help and guidance along the way from you guys

Any thoughts and suggestions so far?
