Eclipse 5g

Well i inherited my sisters little 7 gallon eclipse that she didn't want anymore. Today i put my first inhabitants in, 12 yellow shrimp. I also added some xmass moss and fissidens. There were also some tag alongs that are in there in some crevices i.e. subwassertang.
I have a 13w spiral compact on it, it is a 6500k. Do you guys think this will be ok for the fissidens? They are just a few inches from the light. I'm in the midst of taking pictures and will have them up shortly!

And here they are! Tell me what you think. I've never done moss before so it was a learning experience.

Pictures are tiny on this o.o

13W with 6500K can be considered mid to high light as generally its one watt per gallon. How many hours are you lighting the tank?
