Cool Adding to my collection...

I have a new tank cycling, it's a 2.5g picotope, it has been cycling for a month now but unfortunately without LR, It has a AC 30, and a 50w heater. I need to figure out my light situation, I have an ott-lite over it in this picture.

It would not take much LR to put in there. Maybe only 3-4 lbs. What are your plans for the tank?

I put some LR in there a few days ago, old pic, I bought a Taam Rio Mini Sun LED light today for it and my LFS gave me a free Kenya Tree, I plan just some softies and zoa's.

Update

Alright, I got a smaller 25w heater as the other one didn't fit well, rearanged the LR, got a Taam Rio Mini Sun Light with 5 white LED's and 5 Blue LED's, The guy at my LFS gave me a free Kenya Tree, its purple, although it has not entirely opened up yet i think its really cool. Also do kenya trees need to be fed? If so, what do I feed them?

Looks pretty good. Maybe a bit more rock would be good.

Update!

I bought some more coral and another piece of LR (its a dead piece of coral on a rock covered in coraline) The green softie looks a lot more green in person than in this picture, and I beleive that orange one on the side is a Zoa.
