2.5 npt

So I decided to try NPT for my 2.5 gal tank. I have a potting mix base with gravel cap. I followed OldFishLady's advice so here is what I have

2.5 gal
Plants:
Cabomba -green and purple rooted bunches
Jungle vals-rooted 2
Micro swords
Floating and planted anacharis
Floating juvenile java fern

I will be getting mts i have some sticks i can poke the soil with until then.
I have a 10W 6500k bulb
Heater
And homemade sponge filter

Any suggestions or errors point them out!

I will be updating on growth, oh and my hmpk hermie has been added.
It took me about 2 hours to be done.

Enjoy

Lol ! Well I try not to be rude. I have tried an NPT before but I didn't have proper lights and when I put water in I stirred up the sand and dirt got everywhere ! It was gross and I was like over it. But with more research and the right stuff I hope this one flourishes! My male Hermie loves it so far.
