Things I buy on kickstarter... 1.5g planted office tank

Sometime in 2015 I bought an aquarium on Kickstarted. It's called the EcoCube C and I forgot about it. One day, it got delivered and I remembered that I had bought it... and then I put it in a corner for another 2 years. Recently I "found" it again and brought it into work to have a little desk aquarium!

This is my first aquarium and I have found the resources in these forums unbelievable. Thank you so much.

Aquarium: EcoCube C (removed the plant basket, removed the light)
Substrate: ADA aquasoil
Light: 60W CFL 6500K
Rocks: yes
Plant: Monte Carlo from the Tropica 1-2-3 cups


I browsed a lot before setting the hardscape and trying a few different iterations. This is the end result.


Some pretty not-careful planting.


This is about 15 days in when I realized that the light was not cutting it and I "upgraded" to the lamp with the CFL.






...time passes...


Time for water.





I'm reading more about cycling and trying to find someone at work with a healthy tank to give me a chunk of their filter media to get that going, and then I might think about a couple of shrimp.
