    Are you noticing any deficiencies? If not, you really don't need to dose or add anything but root tabs and liquid CO2 like Seachem Excel would help.

    This is a lot of light for a 40G. There is no sign of carbon deficiency. The plant is simply not growing. Deficiency are showing up when the plant is growing and something (other than carbon) is missing.
    What is your substrate?
    How are your algae?

    OP only said he wanted them healthy looking which is why I thought I'd ask if he was seeing a deficiency or if he's looking for more growth, etc.

    It's not a lot of light it's 2 watts per gallon which I thought was mid light range
