Hey everyone, first and foremost id like to thank all of you for your input, advice, and helpfulness. I am rather new to this forum but will certainly remain an active member for as long as i continue to have tanks.

So i stripped down my 55 gallon tank and now have a bare bones setup with assorted vas, crypts, swords, anacharis, and ludwigia all planted in pots with soil. I have 54 watts of T5 HO lighting, mainland penguin biowheel 350 filter, and no intentions of running CO2. I want to grow these plants as much and quickly as i can so that in 2-3 months when i move out and fully re-scape this tank i will have a lot of plants to start off with.

Do you guys have any suggestions as far as ways to fertilize or anything that would help these plants grow? Or even any ideas on other good plants to get? Suggestions? Ideas? Input? Thanks guys, I appreciate all the help you guys toss up.

with that much light....I'm thinking CO2 is almost a must, or you are going to run into some algae issues....the HO lights will most likely (i dont know your tank dimensions) into the high light category and without CO2, algae will thrive
