Spot the deficiency

I have been running this tank for a while and just can't seem to get the right amount of nutrients in to stop all the deficiency a I have, so I looking for some help with what I need to add. Currently I'm dosing low light weekly with mono potassium phosphate, iron chelate DTPA 10%, magnesium sulphate and potassium sulphate and nothing else since my nitrates stay at a good level. But wondering should I be adding calcium is that what I'm missing? Here's some pictures there's a little Algae
Thanks
