|BradSD||It is actually a little large but it might work. I notice some dense rocks underneath so you might be alright. Next time you set one up go with sand or a very dense gravel.|

|KukaaKatchou||Talked to the guy I ordered my plants from ... the ones that don't get planted come attached to rocks. I went and bought fishing line to attach the moss to my driftwood. The lindernia I need to plant the bottom inch. He recommends gravel substrate over rocks ... isn't gravel just small rocks? I attached a picture of my tank - do I need to change my substrate? (please say no!)|

For a 2.5 tank they recommend 6500 K spectrum (full daylight) CFL bulb in a dome light.

|Destinystar||Sounds great ! Be sure and QT them in some conditioned water for a few days to check for hitchhikers.|

I am not sure If I am allowed to link to another site here, but this is a link to a nice calculator. It can calculate it for you easily...at least the min.
low to med light plants in a 5 gal should be 8W depending how deep-tall the tank is.
for med to high light plants you would need 19 or so W
This is for a standard 5 gallon.
I use the calculator cus i am horrid with numbers. xD You really shouldn't have any issues though with what you listed. IMHO it is more than enough.
