I know another how much light question, but I have struggled with lighting in the past and have a habit of over lighting :)

Anyway, I have picked up a tiny little 5.5 litre tank that I plan to house a few shrimps on my desk. The light it comes with is only a tiny little 1W HPLED and I am guessing it is not going to cut it.

The tank is going to to be less the 5.5ltr once substrate and hardscape go in, I am looking to plant quite heavily with hardy plants like anubias and mosses etc.

Any advice on a decent little light. Also, would Co2 be of benefit in such a small volume?

Any other tips on a tank this size also appreciated

Cheers

Look for something at IKEA. Or maybe some small desk lamp with bulb on your chose. Maybe some USB led light.
Actually, the original light in that set will be good. Forget about CO2.
