New 2.5 gallon low tech betta tank


I originally planned to set this up in my office at work, but they apparently have a "no fish" policy. So, my wife begrudgingly let me set it up in our sitting room

Tank: Standard 2.5 gallon
Substrate: MGOPS topped with inert gravel
Filter: none
Lighting: 11w 6500k CFL in a desk lamp
Plants: Anubias nana
Myrio simulan
Java moss
Java fern
Dwarf sag

Fish: male veil tail betta

Thanks! The betta must like it. He built a huge bubble nest the second day he was in the tank.
