Anubias leaves curling down

I just switched over to EI dosing in my 55 gal about a week ago and have just noticed that the new growth on my Anubias leaves seem to be curling downward. I dose the recommended amounts for a 40-60 gal that's in the sticky at the top of this sub forum. Off my head I think it's 1/2 tsp kno3, 1/8 kh2po4, 1/8 tsp kso3 on MWF and 1/8tsp millers, 1/16 tsp fe dtpa 10% on TRS. What am I lacking to cause this deficiency?

Assuming good CO2, add some calcium in the form of CaNO3 with each water. I had a similar issue in my tank, but after adding calcium, future growth was alright.

You could also add crushed coral to your filter media, or try a combination of the two.

Is there a calcium supplement without NO3 as I have a pretty good size bio load and already dose KNO3? Or anything around the house I could add?
