 Percy  remove  the  background.  Plant  the  same  varieties  in  tight  bunches  and  keep  trimming  and  replanting.  Also  supplement  your  DIY  CO2  with  Glut.  I  feel  your  lighting  is  a  bit  to  high  so  reduce  1  light  atleast  initially  for  a  couple  of  months  till  the  plant  growth  becomes  dense.
 
 Also  start  adding  Liquid  ferts

 The  hood
 
 
 
 Lights  36W  X  4
 
 
 
 These  are  STUCK  with  Bondtite  on  wooden  sticks  and  tied  with  wire  there  is  asoft  double  adhesive  tape  to  bond  them  so  that  in  future  I  can  remove  easily  and  redo  everything.
 
 the  Choke/ballast  are  also  stuck  with  same  tape  and  bondtite  adhesive  on  the  hood
 
 
 
 I  have  always  used  this  method  to  save  the  hood  instead  of  drilling  holes  plus  I  have  made  a  channeling  so  that  I  can  shift  the  wooden  sticks  as  per  requirement  of  the  plants  exposure

 if  this  is  a  week  old  then  i  will  suggest  you  to  start  with  4  hours  and  after  2  week  change  to  5  hours  and  increase  1  hour  every  two  weeks  and  my  tank  i  usually  have  8  hours  photo-period  max  and  i  never  used  any  test  lit  in  my  tanks  only  TDS  meter  to  check  the  hardness  of  water,  this  is  how  i  had  success  with  my  tanks  which  is  healthy  and  algae  free  tank  and  never  lost  any  plants  and  this  is  my  way  of  setting  up  tanks  and  this  is  my  personal  opinion.  and  you  can  go  for  pressurized  co2  in  long  run  DIY  gonna  cost  more  than  pressurized  co2  and  switch  on  co2  2  hour  before  light  comes  up.  And  start  dosing  fertilizer  now  itself.  
 
 And  you  should  have  some  ventilation  in  your  hood  or  your  tank  temp  gonna  increase,  and  go  for  frosted  sheet  for  background  it's  easy  to  install  and  will  give  elegant  look  to  your  tank.

 Nice  startup.  Looking  forward  to  its  progress.  Two  tips  from  my  end:
 
 1)  Replace  your  background  with  a  plain  black  chart  paper.  It  will  increase  depth  of  field.
 2)  There  is  no  focal  point  for  the  eyes.  Need  to  figure  a  place  where  you  would  want  the  viewer's  eyes  to  rest.
 
 Keep  it  up   Thumb Up

 Ask  your  provision  store  to  give  packing  foil,  stick  it  with  plain  water  and  dry  it  with  hair  dryer.  each  PLL  will  require  1  ballast
