My free 5gal minimalistic tank

Right now I have is set up with a MGOPM base capped with Caribsea white sand. I put some Micro Swords, and a little bit of HC along with a nice piece of DW, which consequently has given me a nice tea color. I also put a 23W 6500K CFL in an 8.5" reflector over it.

I'm trying to keep it minimal and not a crazy overgrown like my 55gal. I'll try and get some shots later. Still not sure what to stock it with yet. I've had it up and running for 3 days now, dosing Excel once a day, Comprehensive once a week, and Stability once a day.
