New to planted tanks

Hi I have a100 gal tank in my office that I set up last september and planted in december it is my first attent.I am happy with it but how log it takes to get full of plants. I have avout 70 plants. My water lilys are going wild. but the anubias look the same. and my back ground, with i do not remember the name it looks like a tall grass is the same. I use a wet dry filter and an average of 2 watts per gallon. I have a large discus and four angels and some coris.

Welcome to TPT! Sounds like a nice setup.

And anubias grow slowly so don't fret.

wet dry filter
wouldn't this drive CO2 out of the water? I am still getting back into planted tanks but I can't believe the 'minimal surface agitation' concept has changed that much. A wet dry is all about gas exchange to produce robust healthy colonies of aerobic bacteria.

I suspect your outgassing some useful CO2 with that setup.
