Finally got tank running (pics)

Hello everyone. I would like to think the people on this forum for the tons of information I have received from you either directly or indirectly by reading lots of posts. I am not completely set up yet. I have to work on my pressurized Co2 today and other little projects here and there. But tell me what you think about it. I want the good and the bad. My wife surprised me with a load of plants the other day. Some I know what they are and some I don't. I need to get my Ferts ordered. I need some help with that too. The basic list I have read of people using from Greg Watson is:

KN03
K2S04
KH2P04
Plantex CSM+B

Is this what I should order? I think I read I have to order 1lb min. Do I need anymore than that of anything or anything else?

Basic Tank Details:
59 Gal
Eheim 2026 filter
Presurized Co2 (will start on this today)

Joe

Joe - your GW order looks good. You probably won't need more that 1lb of each - that will last you quite a while. You may want to throw a few more fast growing stems in there for now. What kind of light are you running - and for how long?

I knew I forgot something. My lights are 150w of VHO lighting (aqua-suns) 2.54 watts/gallon for 8 hours a day. I also have some Java Fern to put on the wood today. I will look for some extra stem plants soon. Thanks

Looks like you're off to a good start...I'd assume you have 2 x 75W VHO bulbs? If possible, you may want to run one of them for only 4 hours until you get your ferts, then work back up to both for 8 hours SLOWLY...
