I would first suggest that you do not plant your seeds into rock wool cubes anymore if you are going to grow in soil. Second, I might suggest that you construct yourself or purchase a quality soil mix. Take a browse through either of these two threads -
Another thought might be lighting. How close to what kind of light are the small plants? Could they perhaps be being burned by too strong or too close to a light?
I will guarantee that if you sow your seeds directly into small cups, with drainage holes, of QUALITY soil and simply keep them moist; not wet, not dry, just moist, and keep them under a light, not too close, not too far (use your hand at the plant height - is it too warm?) that you will have a very high success rate.
Also, and this doesn't exactly pertain to your question, but think about growing organically in soil - no bottled nutrients, no checking pH, no deficiencies - just simple gardening.

id stear clear of the rockwell cubes , just stick in the medium after they are germinated. I use the float method and it has NEVER failed me. If they sink to the bottom they wont grow.

I gave you a very concise answer. Read above.
Ditch that GODDAMN MIRACLE GROW.

Build a good organic soil. Ditch the rockwool- this isn't hydro. Quit messing with "germinating solution" and all that. Put seeds in good soil then leave them alone. If you really want to do something you can soak them in water for 12 hours and then put the seed in the soil. Don't try to "germinate" the seed (in a paper towel or a glass of water) before you put it in the soil- germination happens much better in soil than in a paper towel or glass of water.
Is the bottom of the seedling stem shriveling up and then flopping over? It could be damping off, but you're already doing a bunch of things that are not conducive to healthy seedlings, so fix those first.
