10 gallon walstad method

i have a 20 gallon long with eco complete and it took so long to get things to grow and was a great learning experience. Now after checking out Dustin Fish tanks for awhile on Youtube i finely decided to try a dirted tank with one of my tanks lying around. I dont have any invertebrates yet but hoping two in a couple weeks. Let me know what yall think. Tank has been up and running for about two weeks.

Standard 10 gallon

MiracleGro Organic Potting soil
bits of clay mixed in
capped with pool filter sand

2 13watt cfl 6500k bulbs

Crypt Wendtii Bronze
Amazon Sword
Crypt Lutea
Cardinal Plant
Anubias Nana
Dwarf Hairgrass
future plant: Alternanthera reineckii possibly?
