It's my understanding the Amazonia lowers PH and KH. And probably does so quite strongly when new, then tapers off.

So you're probably correct on #2, and there's little CO2 in the tank. The KH test will help you determine that. But I'd get a drop checker and 4°KH solution as well, to give you a visual indicator of the CO2 levels. Especially since the KH may continue to change significantly over time at first. Also, PH probes don't last forever, so down the road the drop checker may alert you that the probe needs maintenance.

Growth may be slow for a couple of weeks as plants and parameters settle in.
