I think they need a good sized open area with fine sand. If you have a tank like that... research what they eat, temp range, etc.

Looks like some staghorn algae to me, but I doubt it is killing your Stauro. Usually it is lack of some nutrient!

Just split the concentrations in half (or double up the water volume to 1l) and then dose twice as much each time. K2SO4 isn't all that soluble.

Maybe wedge it carefully inside the wood? Just enough that it won't float away. And then see how it does? It may accentuate the wood spikes a bit, if that is what you want.
