So I'm currently dosing 2 of my 4 tanks with dry ferts. My 10 gallon is low tech and I'm doing 1/3 the recommended EI dose. That means just adding macro and micro just once a week.
The 20 gallon high tech is getting the full blown EI.
The schedule looks something like this
I'm so new to all this so I don't exactly know what I'm adding and for what purpose. I'm just following the directions laid out by others. I will say the dry ferts with the combination of dirt has given me some plant growing confidence. I've failed terribly with plants the first go around so I'm feeling so much more confident this time around.
Big question here-
My dry fert package came with k2so4 and iron chelate. Neither one I've even touched. What is the potential benefit or risks of adding these into the tanks?
I love your 20L the proportions are perfect, which means if I didn't know I would guess it was at least a 40.
I think that is the trick to a really good scape.

This tank has had some ups and some downs. It's been hit hard with planeria and hydra and was remedied with de-wormer. It's substrate was changed from Eco to black sand halfway through it life. It's also been a challenge with finding the right plants because it as tall as a pop can.
