ropteffort is definitely useful for any search.

I'd use nq=15625 for deg 5, but chances are quite high that your search of small ad-values will have enormous skews anyway. So, leave it alone, see what pops out.

We might choose nq=7776 for deg 6 searches; that is; 45000 might be bigger than optimal. CADO documentation suggests a power of the degree for this, but that's not strictly necessary- perhaps something like 10000 for deg 5 is better than 15625. I've never tried.
