The goal is not to get the highest hourly at 2nl. The highest hourly at 2nl is the samy as a crap hourly at 10nl. You want to learn how to play optimally while at 2nl, so the mistakes are less costly now than later. If you keep thinking about 2nl hourly rates, you will never leave it.
Play 6 tables and carefully think about every single move you make, what you're opening vs who, how good is your bet sizing, what sort of range could the villain have? etc. Listen to what Pascal said about opening wide OTB, this is what makes a good 6max player because micro stakes players are for the mostpart completely positionally unaware.
18/12 is far too big a gap, and too nitty as well. In generaly if you want to play a pot you should be raising it preflop.
