low tech 2.5 gallon

I set this up about three weeks ago. My first aquarium in about 12 years. It's more sort of an experiment to see how everything does under these conditions. So far it seems to be doing pretty well. Except the babytears cuba seems like its not doing great. But I sort of expected that with cO2. I'm going to do the first trim and real cleaning in a week or so. I may ad a few plants as well Let me know what you think

Equipment: Topfin 10 hanging filter
Lighting: 1x13watt cfl 6500k
Substrate: topsoil capped with carribe sea black sand
Plants: pearl grass, babytears cuba, glosso, rotala indica, and creeping jenny(i will likely remove this)
Ferts: none
cO2: none

Sorry for the crumby picture I'll post a better one after the trim
