There is a light in this thread. 18W may be too much, depending on what you plan to keep.

Just letting you know.

It's worth it. Slate bottom's are priceless IMO and only get better with age!

For a similar look at a fraction of the price, you could buy some aluminum angle trim and use it on the outside of a new(and cheaper) tank.

I agree with you there. I have a 2.5g too but accidentally stepped on the side of it and need to replace a frame. Hopefully yours turns out wonderful.

Do you have the original tar seal?

At a fraction of the cost...lol. my sis gave it to me. i do not believe it is original because i cant see any tar. but it looks brand new. Maybe whoever had it had i fake plant in it. i want to do it right and have a layout in mind. i might need co2. ive never used it. i want a full ground cover in the front stretching all the way to the back. lol about 8in by 6in. i have an arch type piece of driftwood. so i want a grassy path through the arch.

As for the filter try Eco Art Nano Filter. You can find them at Petco. I have it for my 1 gallon nano and I am very happy with it.

Have you tested the tank for leaks? Super important. I picked up a metal framed tank like yours and no matter how I resealed it it continued to leak... after a few weeks I gave in. Now it holds all of my aquarium supplies.
