    I see this is a old thread, and I am surprised no one has ever replied... And maybe by now you figured out by yourself.

    From your detailed parameter list, I would try to reduce light 1/4 and increase light time ( from 6 hours to 7-8). Also, I see your GH is pretty low, so you may want to add some GH booster to be sure not to runout of magnesium.

    What else?
