Cool 5 Gallon Hex Nano Tank

Hi all,

just got into planted tanks recently with a friends old marineland 5 gallon hex tank. After an initial round of bad guppies we've hit a nice balanced, vibrant tank that lives atop our desks at grad school.
It's been about of month with the current fish and plants and everyone seems happy.

in the top left is a homemade shrimp nursery for some baby ghost shrimp that hatched ~5 days ago (maybe 2 live ones but they are tough to spot so maybe there are more).

Tank stats
Java Fern
Dwarf Hair Grass (carpet in progress...)

3 Zebra Danios
2 Green Cory Cats
2 Ghost shrimp
1 Amano Shrimp
1 Nerite snail

50:50 mix of white sand and black flora max

Ferts: weekly dosage of generic aqueon plant food

light: 15w CFL daylight+blacklight
