I am not certain what the lighting requirements are for carpets, but 2 x T5's doesn't sound like its enough.
Carpets are also fish eaters. Don't be surprised if you come home one day and the clown is gone.
What's up with the Mollies??

I put the mollies in because I know that they are fish eaters and mollies are $1 or sometimes 2 for $1 at petsmart.
