Pearling?  haha, the only time my plants pearl is when I'm doing water
changes.  Most of it is air from the tap and some of the aire I can see
plants putting off streams of bubbles from one point or another.  I've never
seen them pearl on a daily basis, not even close :-/

Right, I have a very small fish load, so I'll add in the KNO3.

Ok, think I've got it.  Traces, KNO3 and PO4 daily, keep the GH at 4 and
K2SO4 after water changes.  Keep pH at 6.6 with KH at 4 degrees targeting
CO2 at 30ppm.

I think I can do this, I'll let you know the results in a few weeks or so.
Thanks so much for your time and comments, Tom.
