Default Dosing Flourish Ferts Questions

Hi. So I am still learning about fertilizers and I'm going to keep using Flourish for now because it's easier...but I haven't gotten the NPK fertilizers yet (I didn't know comprehensive was just trace elements until yesterday). If my tank already has nitrates (normally 30-40ppm) do I still dose nitrogen? I also need to figure out a real dosing schedule. I have a 20l tank with two 13-watt 6500k CFLs for lighting, and just set up the DIY CO2. Right now I am dosing 1ml Flourish Comprehensive every 2-3days and 1ml Flourish Iron everyday. I assume this is wrong. Any help with figuring out an accurate dosing schedule for Flourish would be appreciated
