Leaf curling Proserpinaca palustris

Pulled one DIY reactor and replaced with an inline diffusser last week. Also upped my photo period about 2 hours, so now it's at 10 hours. Did my weekly water change Sunday and now my Proserpinaca palustris is curled up pretty bad but is showing more red than ever?

I use a combination of 75% RO and 25% tap water.

The only thing I can think of is the extra light and extra CO2 is leaving me deficient in something else?

yup. probably Calcium & Magnesium; maybe 50% RO & 50% tap. I personally would keep the light at 8 hours.

I think the only thing I have bought FW wise for those is Seachem's Equilibrium. Which I may have used once in a year.

They show it has...

Soluble Potassium (K20) 23.0%
Calcium (Ca) 8.06%
Magnesium (Mg) 2.41%
Soluble Iron (Fe) 0.11%
Soluble Manganese (Mn) 0.06%

That doesn't look like a good way to raise either of them. Never noticed how much K it has. I do have Epsom salts and calcium chloride left over from my 20 year reefing habit.
