90G Tank 1 month old

Hello everyone, just registered. Glad to be a part of PTF
Heres my 90G tank. Water inside is about 75G, I had to elevate the substrate to get the lighting better to the bottom.

Substrate: Aquaclay+Sera FloreDepot+White quartz
Lighting: Osram HQL 2x80W (mercury vapor lamps), 12Hours a day
CO2: Pressurised CO2
Fertilising: DIY KNO3 3x week (total 35ppm), Sera Florena 1x week.
Root Ferts: Hagen NPK Sticks, Hagen K balls. (long term)
Temp: 24C

Glossos! My main reason in starting planted tanks

Please let me what you think? or if have any advices?

Thank you in advance,

Nice! gotta love big tanks. It looks really good, I love the driftwood and rocks. I co think this tank would really benefit from one or two bigger plants. A sword or something. Also, a background (i prefer black) would really look better too.

What is the plant near the center, behind the rocks?

What's the filtration, and the co2 diffusion method?

that glosso will look nice!

Thanks esarkipato

Thats a Bolbitis Heteroclita at the back. My first time actually, it is a strange plant, on the edges of its leaves, towards its pointy end, shoots of roots are coming out. Curious about what are they going to be!

Filtration, with canister filter, ATMAN 3338, looks like the large EheimPros.
For the diffusion, Im using a glass bell diffuser, you can see it on the right side of the tank.

And about the background, Ive recently took it off, there was a blue background, left from the old times when there were frontosas in. I was thinking of putting the bacground after the glossos become more dominant. Just to be more complete with the glossos filled in. Black or white I was thinking, but black is probably the one

You said bigger plants? Where would you put them?
