Nano planted tank 2k18

Recently thought about making a nano planted tank for my desk so making this post...hope you wont be disappointed :p
The tank is 7 inch cube diy tank which I made about a week ago.Its 5 mm glass and it holds approx 5.6 litres of water.

The substrate is fluval stratum that was lying around and almost 2 inch in depth throught out the tank.

Plants are rotala,javamoss,hydropiper and the other name i cant recall....:3
The tank has a hob of the smallest hobthat i had lying around once again xD
Lights are diy..the light holder is from another tank but the lights am using are a strip of smd led white 11 in number through a 12v 1 amp dc convertor.
Diy yeast co2 running atm...will shift to citric soon as yeast one seems to be working well but they take some time to produce enough pressure to get decent bubbles....
Using a co2 diffuser that I got hold from with a bubble counter and it seems to be working well :)

So here are some pics...enjoy them..and meanwhile lemme know what other plants I can add as well to this tank...

Future plan is to start ei dosing ( have macro ferts ) with this tank,for micros how would be Seachem Comprehensive? and once the tank stabalize might convert this into a rcs tank :)

i think your light is quite low. probably you should consider doubling it.
