3 gallon deco

I recently setup my 3g Tom's deco at work. It currently has the 18w 50/50 bulb, hob filter, and a small heater. I had some left over black gravel and planted what I believe is java fern, another larger fern, and water wisteria from one of my larger tanks at home. The wisteria did not seem to do well under the light and pretty much melted in a week. The larger fern appears to be slowly doing the same.

I know that the light/bulb for this tank are nearly impossible to replace. Is there another option for this small tank? The tank actually holds closer to 2.5 gallons.

My plan is to add a few more plants, some driftwood (if I can find some to fit the tank),

With small tanks like that, you've got tons of options and many of them look great.

You could do Finnex or Fluval clip-ons at a cost of about $25-30US per.

Or you could do a standard desk lamp with a daylight CFL for often even less.
