None505's 5 Gallon Tank Journal

I have had a lot of aquariums but this is the first that I would call a planted tank. I am a complete noob to keeping anything more than Java Ferns alive. I really have no idea what I am doing but I have wanted to try my hand at a planted tank for a long time so here I am.

Tank: Cheap 5 gallon from Walmart

Lighting: 23w CFL 2" from the water

Filter: Sunsun JUP-43F

Substrate: Safe T Sorb

CO2: None yet

Ferts: I have Flourish and Excel on the way.

Flora: Java Fern, Narrow Leaf Java Fern, Java Moss, Subwassertang, Salvinia Minima and Anachris.

Fauna: 15 MTS and 5 Bladder Snails.

The Java Ferns are tied to rocks/coconut shell with the rhizome and roots above the substrate.
