Iron is considered a micronutrient.

Flourish (comprehensive) is a trace mix with small amounts of macronutrients.
Flourish Trace is just a trace mix.

If you are already dosing macronutrients via Seachem Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium, then while Flourish (comprehensive) is fine, you could just use Flourish Trace (this could be important if one is cheaper than the other).
