[APD] stunted lace plant

Merry Christmas, everybody. I am still trying to figure out why my madigascar lace plant is throwing out leaves that are very wrinkled and unhealthy. Is there a nutrient I should be dosing more of?

Tank specs:
29 gallon tank
2 x 55w cf lighting
pressurized CO2 @ appx 3 bubbles per second
pH 6.8
kH appx 3 degrees

almost algae-free. a little black brush on gravel, but it has not been spreading. Green spot algae; I started dosing more KH2PO4 and it has since stopped spreading. All plants growing well except madigascar lace; rotala macandra been less red lately also. I'm dosing as follows:

50% water change weekly
slightly more than 1/4 tsp KNO3  3x weekly
slightly less than 1/8 tsp KH2PO4 3x weekly (just increased)
7 ml CSM Plantex

What am I missing? the lace plant was growing very robustly and very healthily for many months, but in the past month has stunted.

Any suggestions?
