20g newb~

Hey guys, been reading here for a while and decided I would put up a picture of my 20 gallon. I plan on starting a Mini-M after Christmas if I can talk myself into buying one, but we will see. Here are the tanks specs:
Lighting: 2x24 watt T5HO
Filter: Eheim 2213 + spraybar kit
CO2: Milwaukee Reg + 5lb cylinder + Diffuser + GLA Drop checker
Plants: HC, Anubias (?), Rotala Rotundifolia, Blyxa japonica, Dwarf Hair Grass, Rotala sp. Green (behind driftwood, cant see it because its not doing well for some reason)
Fertilization: EI method for 20-40g aquarium
Water Movement: Koralia Nano Powerhead

I have a little bit of hair like algae only on my driftwood, I think because it is directly below the light and I took about 2 months off regular dosing because of a busy college schedule lol..Hopefully I can pull this tank back together. I have very hard water but I think I may start doing changes with RO....I have tried some plants like Rotala Wallichii and L. Cuba and failed miserably despite constant CO2 + Fertilization and what I would consider pretty strong light and I would love to give these species another try. Here we go, it is just a phone picture because I sadly don't own a nice camera. Be easy, open to all suggestions so please give me some!
