Sounds to me like you are still way under the amount you need in there.
Based on this: I have two 10g tanks. I did the calculator for EI Low light/weekly
and it gave me 1/4 tsp KNO3. Mind you in a once a week dose the amount is larger because that one dose must supply all the KNO3 and not just a percent of it.
So what is it that you modified ? At first glance it would seem that you just omited
one dose from a three dose schedual. If I compare that to what the calculator said for a 10g tank dose it doesn't come to even half of what it could be.
But instead of that eye ball figuring if you just didn't omit that third dose, how can it be overdosing ?
@ 3x 1/2 tsp you are still short, though not by so much, of a 6.5 times that 1/4 tsp dose for the 10g which is listed as a "light" dose.
The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...
