Looks perfect. What kind of grow light? It must be a full spectrum daylight.

I've always used CFL spiral daylights. You can get one around 20 watts that'll grow cheato like crazy. It'll use less power and produce less heat. If you can exchange the grow light I would. The CFL daylights are 6500K and work beautifully.

A Randfordii (sp?) or engineer goby could be cool. The engineer would get about as large as a medium snowflake eel and be very peaceful.
