Rate my doseing schedule

So im doing this in a way that evenly distributes nutrients. On some there are 1/2 doses to not throw things outta wack.
_20 gal medium planted.
_15 watt (.75 WPG)
Sunday. excell. 1/2 potassium
Monday
Tuesday. %25 W/C. 1/2 potassium
Wednesday. Flourish
Thursday.
Friday. %25 W/C. 1/2 potassium
Saturday. Prime
I know the light is low. But it works.
_On at 5pm till midnight.
_On again from 430 am til 8am
Tell me what u think, also would be nice if you share your schedule.

One thing to add: i will be reducing to a once a week water change. I will be putting a root tab under or near the two amazon swords. It is dirted with partial potting soil and standard aqua soil.

Anybody? Looking for any feedback. Positive or negative criticism. Thanks in advance?

That is for a tank which has injected CO2.
I have no injected CO2 so I use one dose of the three. The plants just don't grow fast enough to warrant more.
Excel needs to be dosed daily to be of any use. It increases the Carbon content of the water.
I do one 50% water change and dose the Macros on that day, the Micros the next day.

Pipette(E-bay $3-anything you want to pay or Carolina Equipment(glass)$10+shipping.
The directions say to use 1 ml per 10g, but I use 2 ml for my 10g.
