20 progression after starting EI dosing

I recently started EI dosing. Here is the progression in my high tech 120 over the course of 20 days. The rotalla on the left and the money wort where cut down basically in half soon after the first picture. They are already almost as tall as the where before the trimming. Also note the height of the bacopa on the middle left before and now.

First picture is Sept. 10

Second picture is Sept. 30

EI = Estimative index, Basically you supply all Micros, Macros, and CO2 in excess and then do a massive water change at the end of the week to keep chem levels from becoming toxic. I dose Macros (KNO3, KSO4, and KPO4) and Micros (plantex) on alternating days, 6 days a week. I also dose Flourish Excell everyday. I keep my CO2 @ 40+ ppm, to compensate for the high CO2 I diffuse room air into the tank as well to keep the O2 levels high enough for the fish.

This type of dosing allows for the only limiting growth factor to be light, which is the easiest to control. I am pushing 4+ watts per gallon of high output T5 @ 6700K which run for 10 hours a day.
