5g fry growout and RCS abode

Just wanted to start a random journal on my 5g fry and rcs tank. Nothin too spectacular, but ive already grown 1 batch of fry and another is now moved in. Have 19 rcs and my big female is already berried (only got them roughly a month ago). Specs are pretty simple, sponge filter, for lighting just a worklight clamp with a high wattage florescent bulb(not too sure on total, but its probably too much lol.) standard 5-10g adjustable heater, and a small co2 setup ( bought as just a little $13 dollar kit just to try out, and thus far it seems reliable). Right now there are roughly 20 guppy fry, 19 rcs, and probably 6-7 adult ramshorns and probably 100's of newly hatched -_- lemme know what you guys think!

Plants:
Ludwigia Repens
Stringy moss
Salvinia Minima
sagitarius
Limnophila sp aromatica
creeping jenny (Lysimachia nummularia)

*Edit: Also no ferts, i just use root tabs in my Black Diamond Blasting Sand, thats it for the substrate as well.
