click on the beginners edition one. Just enter in all the specs in Green and it will fill out your schedule for you.

That's a very high amount of light for a tank that size. I would cut back on the lighting till you get things running stable. Also next time you need magnesium sulfate just go to the store and get some Epsom Salts. Same thing. And you might not even need it if you have decent gH in your water source.
