First go at a nano

Set this up for my girlfriend... Maybe now I can spend more money on the hobby how's it look?

Has Java fern floating, some anubias tied to driftwood, and micro swords planted in the substrate. Some roots are not fully covered... Should I fix that? Sub is a mix of sand and aqua soil. Lighting is an LED fixture, azoo filter and a 25w Hydor. Here is the light.

Zitrades Fish Tank Aquarium Clip Lamp Light Kit Flexible 48led 4 Mode 3.5w White Blue

Houses a single betta. Using water from my established tank and media so it's a bit murky from the soil.

Hopefully someone else will know more about the specifics but I wonder if that light is strong enough for the micro swords.
