    My gut feeling is that your tank is going to look amazing. Really well done.

    Yes, I would switch from the bottled products and get some dry fertilizers and go the EI routine of dosing.

    Welcome to Planted Aquarium Fertilizer

    It is much less expensive and easy to do, and is adjustable by a wide range.

    It does require a weekly 50% water change.

    It probably would not hurt you to do a few more water changes or a little more often. Esp with a newly setup and/or changed tank. You have a new substrate correct? If so, a weekly or bi-weekly for a few weeks is mandatory IMO/IME.

    Congrats on the c02 tank purchase!

    Tank is looking nice.
