If you are following the EI dosing regime and doing the 50% water change weekly I would adjust a single variable. Keep the dosing the same - adjust your CO2 (as you have) and watch the response. Continue to adjust a single variable over time - I would personally use 1 to 2 weeks as a guideline for time.

As for the drop checker. Are you using aquarium water or 4dKH water? Have you checked the ppm of your CO2? I attached a link to a table that can help you determine if your CO2 is in line.

I tore this tank down and started 2 new 20 Longs... one reef and one FW planted. The current house I have was just too big a pain to do big water changes every week with RO water and the winter made me slack on them.
