25 Gallon Beginner!

Hey everyone! Well I have a 55 Gallon mbuna tank, and never really thought about plants until now. So I bought the biggest tank I could get for the space I had (I know taller isn't better but I'm gonna try)! My lighting is a DIY hanging light fixture and I used Fluval Stratum under the gravel. My lights are two 26Watt CFL (LEDs were to expensive) bulbs hanging from the ceiling. So far I have 3 bunches of Blyxa Japonica, 1 larger Tiger Lotus, Hornwort and some Rotala Rotundifolia. Oh and 3 Dwarf Neon Rainbowfish with more to come! Opinions/Comments welcomed! Thanks for looking.

That's a nice looking piece of DW. You should get some fauna into the tank!

Fish Shrimp tanks are like cups of coffee, one is never enough.
