what a difference co2 makes / pics

Before and after co2 pics. The first pic is 2 months ago , and the second pics are today. I was very hesitant about going co2 , but I am glad I did. Still not scaped like I want it , but I'm getting there. I would like to add some wood but I read where it can alter pH. My tank is a 55 gallon . pressurized co2 with a GLA supreme regulator , diffused with a GLA atomic 70mm diffuser. The diffuser is set below a power head that sucks up the co2 bubbles and sprays them all over the tank. I don't really like all the tiny bubbles every where , but I don't really know how to change that ,as I am using 2 aqua clear hob filters. I don't like canister filters. My pH with co2 off is 7.6 and I set my pH controller at 6.6 and it holds perfectly steady. I use a Milwaukee mc122 controller and I love it.
