I had, and my boyfriend had, that very tank for about 6 months.
It was a great tank, albiet smaller than the recommended 2+gallons.
My boy loved it, and I was able to comfortably heat it with my 10w Marineland (a skinnier heater) and plant it with fake plants (Wasnt into real..)
It means more frequent WCes, but eh. I can see one female living in there really really well, but males can too :B <3
The little light wont grow anything, no, but its unabraisive to the fish (not too harsh) and can be repositioned and tilted to wherever you want it to point, which is nice for creating a dark spot for sleepin' and a light spot for playing :D
The filter it comes with is (forgive me..) crap though. Its terrible, useless really. BUT its hooked to an external (though unadjustable) airrator, which is awesome for airstones with a modified Tvalve :D (I did that!) I never used the filter.
But yeah... lol
If youre interested in it, Id say, eh- go for it. <3
