You can increase the amount of CO2 you use, if you do it very slowly, increasing the bubble rate slightly for a few days, and observing the fish to be sure they aren't suffering from it. If the plants seem to do a bit better, repeat this until either the fish show signs of suffering, or the plants don't do any better.
Ok but just to understand, my tank is 300 liter, and I have 4*54w which is 220w that means that I have less then 1watt/liter, which is as far as I understand, the ratio for high tech tank. Am I wrong? Or maybe the PAR is what determine??
