my first 1 gallon tank

Hi everyone, this is my first attempt to setup a 1 gallon tank.
Im open to suggestion on how to improve this setup
i used clay covered with gravel for the substrate and i used a desk lamp for the light (12 watts). im going to use a DIY co2.

its an ok start. actually its pretty good with the setup you have, but how many nutrients does the clay have? (silt, clay, sand, and gravel only reffer to the size of the particles).

I am pretty sure clay is not a size...

That's a beautiful setup! Are you planning any plants for the wood? (Anubias, ferns or mosses? Flame Moss would be my choice...)
