Kary's 250L planted tank (56K Warning)

Hi all,
I've started this tank in the last year. It was the my third attempt to make a beatifull planted thank.
I've had only 60 w of light in the first attempt and did'nt use any substrate or fertilizer, therefore the result was very poor...
After that I've rised the light to 110W and I've used some fertilizer from a fishshop. The result was better but not that what i want to see.
I've read a lot of this forum and collected information from fertilizer, light and demend of plants.
It's time has come to make a new planted tank.
// Sorry for my bad english //

Technical parameters of the tank:
250 L
130 W PC (5500K) + 60 W flourescent lamp
substrate heater,
JBL 250 outer filter
10 lbs Co2 tank

Waterchange: 50% every week
Fertilizer: makro every other day, mikro every other day.



There are few picture of the tank

First day:


Day 9


Day 9 (Alga and glosso. )


Day 18


Day 24 (first triming)


Day 24


Day 30


Day 30


And the last one in day 50

Very nice.

When I saw the first picture I laughed out loud. I thought that the first pic was the finished product.

The last picture looks awesome, truly amazing work.
