Root tabs may help. With your current dosing you are missing most of all the micros as well as nitrogen and phosphate.

If you tell us what ferts you have, what the size of the bottle is, and exactly how much each pump is we can help. You are probably going to want to be more accurate than about 1/4ounce.

Zorfox, do you think in this instance that there would be a big advantage to dosing 1/3 the normal amount 3x per week versus 1 full dose 1x per week?

For that matter, would dosing the full...

You should be able to make a mixture that will provide roughly 20 doses(50ml per day) in that 1000ml container pretty easily. What and how much of each are you mixing?

You will be fine. Seachem ferts are very dilute, most likely even with that over dose you are still way under EI dosing levels. If you are worried a 50% water change would be fine.
