3 gallon Aquatop shrimp tank

Just set this tank up today in my office.

Some malaysian driftwood, a couple anubias nana, java fern windelov in the back left corner, some el nino fern back right, and some sad looking downoi in the front. Just wondering what color neos to put in it, I want something that will really pop against the dark eco-complete. Also have a pack of petsmart dhg I was thinking about adding.

how about a nice white light instead of that blue light?

I'd go for some orange pumpkin neos or something bright like that.

It is blue very isn't it? Lol, its the stock light that came with the tank. I may swap it out, just wanted to get it up and running. The hardest thing for me is waiting for the cycle. I`ve never heard of the el nino either just snagged a bunch of top fin plants on a run. Pumpkins do sound good, I was thinking about some orange rillis for another set up and as long as I don't mix them I`m good right?
