Flourish fertilizer dosage tables appear to be designed for low light tanks only. When you have more light than that you have to dose more than the table amounts. Personally, I would order the dry chemicals you listed and use the Flourish comprehensive as a micronutrient mix until it runs out, then switch to the CSM+B, and I would keep using the Excel at double dosage.
