OK. So this forum has inspired me to take a dive into the world of nanos!

What I have:
Used 2.5 gallon aquarium (passed leak test)
Used glass lid
Onyx Sand Aquarium Substrate,
15.4 lbs by Seachem
some Flourish Excel
Light fixture with a Coralife 50/50 mini compact fluorescent 10w

some dwarf hair grass and glossostigma

Your thoughts on my setup? Anything you think I should change? Fert ideas? Planting tips? Anything? :D

Coralife makes a 6700k version of that bulb I believe. Those would be better for plant growth. Or you could get the Hampton Bay desk lamp that was suggested. I use them on my 5.5 gallon tanks. They come with a bulb that's perfect for growing plants, and it's easy to adjust the height. I got them at HD for $25.
