KNO3, KH2P04 and CSM+B to start...

Whats your tap water like? GH? KH?

Maybe...GH Booster, K2SO4 and possibly more Fe.

Flourite is an inert substrate, with the ability to adsorb some nutrients, making them easier for plant roots to take up. You need the same fertilizing with Flourite as with ordinary sand.
