I think your set up is great at this point. If you are wanting to get more growth, you would need a substrate at the bottom of the tank that promotes that. I use eco-complete and let the nitrates in the water do the rest. With the lights on for 12 hours and watching the algae growth under the tank lights for shading, this helps my plants grow at the rate they need. I am constantly researching the best way to grow them too! I want faster growth, but honestly, some plants won't grow as fast as we want them without the fertilizer properties in the water by the fish waste, or by using fertilizer.
