Smile 12 Gallon Aquapod - First Planted Tank

Ive had this aquapod for at least 5 years, and it used to be a reef tank. its had nothing in it for about 2 years, so i thought i would bring it back to life. it is however, very badly scratched (although i didnt really care to do anything about it). not sure wat i did to scratch it, maybe used the wrong type of scrubbing pad haha.

Ive ordered plants and one got here today, and the rest will be here by wednesday. so the pictures of the ones planted are only going to be there for a day or two.

Plants:
Anubias Nana
Bacopa Australis
Java Fern (attached to driftwood)
Lindernia Rotundifolia Variegated
Lloydiella (golden)
Marsilea Quadrifolia

The plants in the tank right now are the Lindernia Rotundifolia. it is a beautiful plant, very vibrant. I love how it looks with the air bubbles.

My Light:
32w 10000k, power compact bulb

There is a teeny weeny baby snail that came with the plants, not sure what kind of snail it is. anyone know?

Pics!

Looks like a pond snail to me. Also known as a bladder snail. Most people consider them pests, but if you have a puffer or loaches, then it's lunch.
