Your plants seem to be growing pretty well, so whatever the problem is,
it can't be too severe.  You should probably tailor your response to the
magnitude of the problem -- no real big changes.  Doing one change at a
time usually helps isolate problems.  It would be interesting (well, for
me anyway; I'm not the one hauling water) to see what happens just from
using Denton's water as all or part of your next few water changes.
