Hey, was wondering if I am using too much nutes?

I have a 3 gallon pot and 5 gallon pot with pro-mix HP mycorrhizae soil for both.

I accidentally watered too much today and water was leaking from the holes at the bottom of the pots and I was curious to find out the PPM and acidity in those water and I found out my PH was 5.4 and my soil PPM was over 1800, not 9000 but over 1800 since the maximum number my meter can detect is 1800.

My girls are at the 7th week of flowering, I put them into flowering after 2 weeks of veg.

My tap water has a base PPM of 350 and during vegetative stage I used alaskan fish fertilizer with 600PPM to 800 PPM every other watering.

And during flowering stage my weekly is as follows:

I water 3 times a week
week 1: 900 PPM, 0 PPM, 0 PPM
week 2: 1000 PPM, 0 PPM, 550 PPM
week 3: 1100 PPM, 550 PPM, 550 PPM
week 4: 1200 PPM, 550 PPM, 550 PPM
week 5: 1100 PPM, 550 PPM, 550 PPM
week 6: 1100 PPM, 550 PPM, 550 PPM
Week 7: 1000 PM
The PPM is the PPM of the water when I have added all the nutrients in.

What do you guys think? Too much nutrients or no?

And I usually water my girls with PH above 6, but somehow it goes below 6.

but for real is there any burning on the tips of the leafs

and when u water u always want to have about 10% run off
There is no signs of burning but like there are other problems, here's a thread i posted with pics, I'm not sure if it's the nutes but my girls look weird right now.

@himjohn , if you're using coco, you want to see run off, otherwise you might be building up salts in your pot. and if you dont feed to see runoff, use some clearex man or just flush once a week, and feed the next day. u dont want salt build up in coco. it'll fuck shit up. nutes will get locked out.
