The lighting is a 25 watt Verilux incandescent bulb eleven hours a day in a piano lamp ten inches over the substrate.

Watts per gallon calculations are inaccurate to start with, harder with a small tank, and made worse by converting between incandescent and fluorescent. But dividing by 7, you have the equivalent of about 3+ watts of fluorescent over your two gallon tank. Since small tanks need more light, this may just be not enough light.
