For this small a tank, and wanting minimal light as in the Rio Nego, I'm going to look at CFL too. There will be no filter. Tons of plants, sand, heater, minimal light, chunks of wood. Exact replica of the Rio Negro; might even try dried oak leaves from my oak tree.
I'm sorry I thought the links to the fixtures would have helped
You know I used to only use Oak leaves in the shrimp or cray set ups and just outta curiosity added it to my tetra's recently - I have changed nothing about their water/food/lights but I can assure you the coloration has been influenced by it and the fish seem a lot healthier to me anyway then a few weeks back; I assume much like it aids shrimp there's other beneficial leaking from it that also fish get helps/health from.

Sooo much better looking That grass will built nice runners and will out well over time that'll be real pretty. I may add a lil Sword or Java Fern off to the side just some a lil something with some height in there.
