Can mix these different ferts together?

I was wondering if I could mix these different ferts together. I am currently dosing:

Mon:
Seachem Equilibrium

Tues:
K2SO4 1/8 tsp
KNO3 1/2 tsp
KH2PO4 1/8 tsp

Wed:
CSM+B 1/8 tsp

Thurs:
Seachem Flourish

Sun:
Water Changes

Could I dose Equilibrium, CSM+B and Flourish together? I hear it is best to dose specific ferts on alternate days, but these 3 seem to do the same. What do you all think, could I?

Hi Cinbos,

The only thing you need to avoid is phosphate and iron at the same time.
