360 Litre - Planted Tank (56k Warning)

This is my new tank which is ≈360 litre 121cm long, 70cm high, 51cm wide. With 120 watts of light. (4x 30Watt T8s).

Substrate consists of 1 inch of play sand with 300w undergravel heater cable buried in it(useful? i am not sure, thought I would put in place as the tank was empty). 1.5 inch of TetraPlant Complete Substrate and 1 inch of 3mm black gravel.

I am currently not using any CO2 injection, can't afford a pressuized unit at present and thought that a few DIY CO2 bottles would be pretty useless! Do you think this sensible or is a little CO2 injetion better than none.

Thetank was planted 1st September so the pictures below show the tank after one months growth of which I am fairly happy.

I am considering removing the plant at the front left in front of the bogwood as it has just melted away over the last month and also considering removing the Elodea Crispa as I do not find it a very attractive plant.

Tips and Ideas would be most welcome
