Waitwaitwait. Rex didn't read your OP, you got CO2, so you are covered there. You got plenty light, but with good CO2 levels there is no problem. For a "moderately planted" tank you could cut the wattage down a bit though, 2wpg should be enough, and better for your energy bill.

Your problem is you are dosing nothing. 15 ml of your solution add basically no nutrients to your tank. This is where I was going with my original question - with a tank that size, you need to dose dry, or mix something like a gallon of solution where you dose a good amount (not 15ml) every day. You can not dissolve enough salt into 15ml of solution to keep your tank happy.

Download this app: http://www.csd.net/~cgadd/aqua/art_plant_aquacalc.htm and play around with it, keeping in mind that you can only dissolve so much salt in a given amount of water, depending on what kind of salt. That's why you see ppl recommending to dose dry.
