Seachem Dosing Chart of 15 Gallon Planted

Based on Seachems dosing charts, I am using the following dosing routine minus the IRON and Trace. I 've read Trace is unnecessary if I am using flourish and I have Seachems Flourite substrate which is iron rich.
So far things have been looking pretty good and dont see any signs of deficiency but I have also been told that seachems charts are kinda of on the lean side. Any recommendations on what I can tweek? oh and measurements are in ml. I do plan on going dry as soon as my current stock of liquids run out.

Plants can't get much iron from Flourite substrate. Before iron can be picked up by the plants it has to be bio-available, which generally means chelated. I suggest using the Flourish iron too, even though there is some in Flourish comprehensive.

Really? I feel cheated as the package claims flourite iron rich. I suppose the CEC is it's greatest benefit. Another question if NPK are the macros why is iron dosed daily in seachems chart?
