Default Fluval Chi 5g (Photo intensive update 10.07.12)

I got a free fluval chi from a great Houstonfishbox member and decided to turn it into a planted nano. This will be my first planted and first nano. I'm still in the beginning process and any comments, constructive criticism, or suggestions would be great! I've already received a lot of suggestions and comments on HFB and just wanted to share with you guys.

Tank specs & equipment:
5g Fluval Chi (31.25 L x 25.4 W x 25.4 H cm)
Eco-Complete African Cichlid substrate
Manzanita Driftwood
Zoo Med 501 Turtle Canister Filter (Seachem Matrix, Prefilter sponge, and coarse sponge)
12.5" 6 watt Ecoxotic Stunner LED 18-8000K White 6-453nm Blue
90w Lamp (not sure of the specs on it)

Here are a few pics of it currently setup and the equipment. Livestock includes 2 Molly fry, 3 chocolate tylos, and 3 nerites. Molly are temporary until shrimp and livestock are added. No plants yet but I'm slowly gathering them. The light is not going to sit in the tank like that. I'm looking for a mounting clip to attach the stunner strip to.

Sorry for picture quality. All photos taken with cell phone.
