Default 56 gallon column tank

So I figured I'd start up one of these, just so I can get your guys opinion on my tank and see if I'm doing anything right? Lol. Marineland's 56 gallon column tank. And my first attempt at a planted tank.

I got this tank in November around black friday for a sweet deal. 209 bucks.

Plants I have in there so far are:
Crypt Wendtii Bronze
Crypt Wendtii Green
Rotala Indica
Rotala Roundifolia (there's not a lot, one little tiny plant)
Jungle Vals

Not the best selection of plants, but I kinda had to work with what my local retailer stores have as the LFS around here have no plant selection whatsoever. I kinda wanted to keep it simple, though, and just let them grow. Not into messing with things too much.

Among other things I also have 7 White Clouds in there. (the golden variety.) Substrate is Carib Sea Floramax, capped with Eco complete on top.


Suggestions? How am I doing?
