I mix my ferts in a 1000mL batch and dose 1 mL per 10 gallons so I would have to wait until I get home to get you the exact measures in grams that make up the regime. Im thinking its only 4gm...

MnSO4 is what I have been using

CSM+B= green
Millers+ GREEN

Not to say the CSM+B doesn't do it job, it most certainly does but the Millers brings out darker shades of Green.

My greens don't seem as GREEN. I wonder what the green portion of the Millers does, or has an effect on? Lighting? Like water with tannin in it, or if its a real change.

You would have a greater impact leaving the light off for 4 days than not fertilizing for 4. I would leave them on.

I could be wrong but im pretty sure these are geared towards the saltwater hobby more than planted tanks. Aquafloras are geared more toward the red end of the spectrum.

You should probable some sort of substrate that will provide nutrients for plants. Inert gravel isn't going to grow good plants. Think of a tomato plant growing on a rock versus in dirt. Same theory...

Honestly, with the plants you have, and CRS, you would be of more benefit to get some ADA aquasoil and feed both the roots AND the shrimp rather than just the water column.
