2.5 gal shrimp tank

I am setting up a 2.5 gal.
Equipment is a 24in t5 aquarium light 8 inches above, and a corner sponge filter. The scape is black sand, unknown type of rocks, and pearl weed.
I set it up with some greenish rocks but didn't like it, so here is the updated version. Tell me what you think?

I moved it inside an apple crate, and now my lighting is a single 5000k cfl bulb. I like this light cuz it really brings out the green in the pearl weed.

So, it's been a week with the new light, and the pearl weed has grown rapidly. Really impressive growth, and I'm happy cuz it's more bushing and not growing up much.

The pearl weed is really growing well, but... so is some hair algae : / I pulled out as much as I could. Its not really a problem because once I get shrimp they'll take care of it.
