Default unknown outcome

Dilemma, was worried that I'm starting a too little tank for setting up a 2.5g planted tank. Parts and equiptments were all bought here in gtaa. Yesterday, received an approximately 1g office tank. I thought has some potential , picture should explain what I'm talking about better. So after confirming that I can upgrade my tank size in a later date if I see it not working out for me, would start with the 1gallon office tank and work my way up if needed.

So here's my list (for now)
1gallon office tank (you'll know what I mean when the pic's up)
Ott lite desk lamp (was on sale @ Canadian tire)
Red sea's nano filter
Fluval spectrum substrate
Heater tbd
Inhabitants not sure yet

I will just poke in and say a 2.5 gallon planted tank would owrk wonderfully. I have a 1.5 gallon planted with a couple CPD's in it filter's a whisper, heater is a HOB one. light though is my 4 footers that spans several tanks. Still, it works. It can be done, it's just tricky finding the small sized plants :3 Good luck!

Default here's my tank with the mystery items

I got this tank as a gift so will start with this one and see where it goes. It's ~1gallon tank.

And tadaaaaaaa!!!


And here it is out of the box with the mystery item.



I plan on removing all those office furnitures of course and that'll be the next step for this tank.
