2.5G nano tank Journal

I got a 2.5G recently, and decide to write a journal of setting it up. I am new to nano tanks, so this is my first try. I'll post what I did, and the result. It is not too much of aquascaping, just to create a quiet green corner on my desk.

Here are the specs:

tanks: 2.5G
Light: Home depot 27W
filter: red sea nano HOB filter
substrate: ADA amazonia
plants: Blyxa J. and HC
CO2: DIY into the intake of filter

update week2

after one week's cycling, the nano has its first resident. My betta moved in to his new home today, he used to live in my 20L tank.

plants update: no apparent change, but the Blyxa is pearling, and I noticed HC is also producing bubbles, which is a good sign that they are growing.
