Dosing amount and schedule ok? Plant ID as well
 
Hi, long time lurker haven't particularly posted though. Anyway, I'm currently running what I would call a moderately planted 20 gallon high tank and wanted to know if the current dosing schedule seems ok or if I should perhaps bump it up or lower it. Any advice would be great.

Also if I could possibly get a plant ID if anyone has any idea what this is it would be great, the plant itself smells minty or somewhat minty if that is any help at all.

Here is the dosing amount and pictures of the plant needing ID'd, thank you in advance.

Current plant load:
2 Full grown Java Fern
6 Java fern plantlets (plucked and planted)
2 Anacharis stems (was a bunch, but pulled 4 out)
6 Pennywort stems (bunch)
5 Unknown stems (plant that needs ID'd)

I am doing Co2 injection via Red Sea Turbo Co2

Current Dosing Schedule:

What are you referring to with the 2s and 1s in the chart(cap fulls, teaspoons, tablespoons)? I can't specifically identify the plant but it looks like a bacopa sp. I could be completely wrong though;)

the measurement would be in mL's

using a medicine dropper at the moment for measurement, i know it's not the the greatest in accuracy but it's the best i could find for the time being.

Ditto on the Bacopa ID....

A medicine dropper is accurate enough. After all you never really know how much of the ferts your plants take in. I use dropper bottles too. And I can easily adjust how much I add. Sometime I add a little more sometimes less. Tweaking in this hobby is omnipresent!

so how about amounts that i'm dosing then, does it seem ok considering tank size and plant load?

It looks like emersed Bacopa caroliniana.
