I'm not sure about lighting in a 2.5gallon
Sorry. The smallest I've done is 5.5. But, start off with plants that do not need too much light or maintenance. The rule is to stay with 3watts/gallon and 6500 kelvin.
plantedaquariumscentral.com has some good ones at a great price. Look under beginner plants and low light plants! Stick to these types.
