dave's right, you will definitely need to add NPK for your fertilizer regiment. also i'm not sure your filter will provide enough flow. from what i've worked out, you have a 45 gallon tank, and your filter provides a turn over rate of ~265 gph. you might want to consider something in the 300-400 range. however if you find that you get sufficient flow, then it should be fine.

as well, with the amount of lights you have, you may want to upsize your CO2 source, as you're around the medium to high light levels. i would consider pressurized co2 as a future upgrade, because you may have an issue with algae.
