Looks quite nice. I wouldn't worry that much about the ammonia, ADA is supposed to do. It helps the plants grow as well as cycle the tank. Water changes at least 2-3 times a week for the first few weeks. I think at about 3-4 weeks you can go down to once a week. I'm fairly new to aquasoil, but that seems to be right.

You did a really nice job with the rocks.

Anyway keep doing the water changes. With Aquasoil your really suppose to do daily 50% first week, every other day next week and eventually once a week.

Put the lights on a very short light cycle until the plants really fill in. Co2 relies on plant mass to keep algae away, it's not an algaecide in itself.
