Flourish iron


I have a big bottle of flourish iron...
Any idea how many times i should dose?
Says 1 capful for 50 gallons.
But just wondering if that is indeed acurate?
When i baught my ferts i baught a 1L bottle of iron instead of the dry mix heh..
What should i aim for? .1mg/l? And im guessing best way to know where im at and then calculate my dosing is to get iron test?

Thanks

High tech tank would be dosed more often than a low tech tank, but beyond that I am not sure.
There is a suggested fertilizer schedule at the Seachem web site. Maybe that would help?
