Help set up my ferts.

I thank you all for your time...

I have a 29 gallon tank with 4 18 watt t8 bulbs about 2 inches off the water.
I inject co2 at about 1bps into a reactor.

been growing plants great but starting to notice Deficiencies in some of my plants.

doseing some ferts now but just guessing at what is right...and getting some cladophora and nirates stay at 0
plants I have growing well

Marsilea crenata
compact hygro
riccia fluitans
rotala rotundifolia
red ludwigia
hemianthus microanthemoides
some more but thats most of them

looked at the EI type but lists doses for high light and 50% water changes weekly

There are modifications to EI for lower light. For my low tech tank, I dose 1x weekly instead of 3x. WCs are no big deal.
