Water cloudy after dosing Iron Chelate?

I'm currently using EI to dose fertilizers, but nearly every time I add Iron Chelate, the tank clouds. Why is this happening?

1/16 tsp Potasium Sulphate (K2S04)


RO/DI water with Barr's GH Booster

And, here's all my other details:
29 Gallon Biocube with modified stock filtration to eliminate wet/dry chamber
