Finnex 4g - First Planted Tank

This is my first attempt at growing something other than hard to kill plants.

Tank, Finnex 4g
Filter, Included hob
Substrate, Flourite Black Sand
Light, Solar Duo Boy 26watt CT-10k
Co2, No
Flourish Excel, Daily
Plant Care 0-0-5 Fert with water changes
Heater, 75 degrees
Hardscape, Rose Quartz
Flora, HC
Fauna, Green Neons, Red Dragon Plakat

The quality of the video isn't the best, I will try to get some better lighting next time.

The HC looks like it is perking up since it was planted, but it seems to be growing up rather than out. Not sure what I should try changing first. I thought about changing the light to a 6500 bulb. Anyone know a good one that will fit this fixture?

Any comments would be appreciated. I am a total noob at this. =)

Great looking neons and betta, but 10 neons in a 4 gallon tank is way overstocked. One way to fix this is just get a 10 gallon sump.
