Trace nutrients....dose daily?

Do you dose daily? I think some of my plants are experiencing what appears to be Ca deficiency. Contorted, wrinkled leaves. Some time, the new leaves look a bit twisted. The edge of the leaves does not look straight. These problems are more pronounced with leaves closer to the water surface, towards the light. Plants do not get as much light tend to have normal looking leaves.

Have been on EI dosing for 2 months.

Have a 40g tank but using 40-60g dosage.
Nitrate 10 ppm to 25 ppm.
Phosphate is 4 ppm to 5 ppm.
I dose about 11 ppm of Potassium but can't measure how much I have in the tank.
Trace element has been 10ml 3x per week (500ml solution mixed with 2 tablespoons of CSM+B).
Adding Seachem Equilibrium as a form of GH booster 1x per week during my 50% water change.

CO2 level is lime green 2 hours before the end of the light cycle (8 hours photo period).
