Miller Microplex, CSM+B--EDTA

So I just found out both of these use EDTA as the chelating agent, which is only effective at a pH below 7...has anyone else considered this??
I'm thinking I may use something else for my trace...

couldnt you just use water with a ph below 7 to mix it with before adding to the tank

It's the water that the plants are in that's the issue.

Exactly. Sorry to be resurrecting an old post, I forgot that I posted this...
If anyone with some background in chemistry can answer this, that would be great. I guess a lot of people use these mixtures with seeming success, so maybe it's not that big of an issue,...
