Also as far as dosing goes Tom Barr recommended I start dosing my micros more often. He said it would make the c parva grow more upright. I can't tell you how right he was. It has been less then a week and I have already seen more new leaves then I have ever seen also all of them are growing upright. I use millers microplex myself. I just dry dose it however on a tank as small as yours you would have to mix up a batch.
I'm interested in the link for future reference. Also interesting about the micros. I thought I was overdosing mine as it is (more than EI), but I'll try upping it and see how it does.
