First thing to do is to replace the light that came with it. I have the same tank and I love it. I decided to plant it with sand and put shrimp in there. The plants I was putting in there weren't growing hardly at all and then I read up about the lighting. Snagged a Aqueon Flouramax bulb for it from Pet Smart and it has really taken off. Trust me, a new bulb will do wonders over the stock bulb. Just make sure you get a bulb rated around 6500k.

I had the minibow 10w in my 2.5g tank, and it kept the water a nice and toasty 85-87 degrees, so I replaced it with a Hydor Theo 15w. I really like the adjustable ones so you can control the temp a bit better.

you should put some more water in it so it looks fuller, takes up more space too,and decorating tips, uhm...
thinks for your fishy to swim into, or through, a plastic cup with holes carved in it is good, no sharp edges though, another good idea is a coffee mug at each end of it.... some short and some tall plants similar to the ones you have, to give it height when you look into it.... that type of stuff.... and take a wet cloth to the front, and dry it off with a paper towel to give it some sparkle!
but your tank looks really nice already !

That's a nice looking tank...I've been seeing a lot of these on this site. Is it the Petco one?

I tend to go for more natural looking decor and plants and occasionally something 'weird' thrown in. Personally, I like the look of driftwood a lot.
