My First Planted Tank 20 Gallon

First let me start off with How much I love this forum, looking for plenty of feedback as this is my first attempt at a planted tank.
With that out of the way....Specs

Lighting: Solarmax t5 Ho 48 watts, If this proves to not be enough I will add another fixture.

Substrate: Eco Care Complete

Filtration: Aqua Clear 30

Pressurized Co2... Finally!!

EI dosing.

This is the tank before, co2, and fertilizers.

Here is a more current picture, this still before my co2 and fertilizers arrive. The Dwarf Sag was not to my liking, nor was the irregular growth of my Red Ludwiga, while the color was striking it grew in a bending fashion not good if I'm trying to scape in a small 20 gallon tank. That said I moved my Rotala Indica in place of the Ludwiga, and decided to go with a Glosso carpet instead of dwarf sag.

Thankyou, I had cherry barbs... They like shrimp a little too much -_- so back to the fish store they went. The Betta has a bachelor pad for now.
