My 55 gallon farm tank after switching to AS

Hello All,
I was having problems with this tank using MTS with a Eco Complete cap. I did a complete removal and install of As. I wasn't satisfied with the growth after the install. I asked around and was told I didn't need to EI dose or use substrate ferts. Well, I went back to EI dosing and osmocote caps and I am getting better results. Just thought I would share my tank with you folks and see what you thought. It is a plant only tank. 3.9 WPG and pressurized using one Oldpunk's rigs.
Thanks for looking!!
Tim

Yea! It's looking pretty good... Have you modified your ei dosing or just regular doses?
