2.5 planted tank journal

So I decided to set up a 2.5g planted tank after looking at so many nano tanks!

I set it up yesterday, it was very cloudy then, but it got better.

Specs:

Substrate : Black Flourite Sand
Filter : Azoo Palm Filter
Light : Coralife 2x9w 6700k bulbs
No Co2, might do DIY soon though

Flora as of right now :
Taiwan Moss
HM
Rotala Nanjenshan
Rotala Rotundifolia

Light is on for 6+ hours a day. If you think it should be more, just post it

and now, while its cycling... What should the Fauna be?
What and how many.
I can get :
Yellow Shrimp
Celestial Pearl Danios
Spotted Rasboras

Eheim Pimp #351, Classic 2213.

CPD's don't do well in anything less than a 10g. They need the swim room and larger groups.

Consider the Microrasbora Nana (microdevario nanus) as they stay really small 1.5cm.

Spotted rasboras not sure on depends on the size. probably not many.

Start with a dozen or so shrimp once tank is about 60 days old and you should have lots in no time.
