If you ever think you're too small to make a difference, spend a couple of nights sleeping with a mosquito.

Seachem iron is just that: Iron. There are many, many more micro nutrients. Seeing how you are already willing to mix dry ferts, you could go with CSM+B for a full micro mix. It's available from GLA, nilocg.com, and many many others.

Seachem Iron should not be needed if you dose CSM+B, as the latter already contains iron.

However, you can always keep it just in case you need to add supplemental iron.

You can skip magnesium sulfate if you have hard water.

I'm sorry, but I found some humor in this lol. Test kits are very important to maintaining an aquarium, especially if you intend on fertilizing.

You can't get an API master test kit online from Amazon, etc? They're like $20 here in the states.

You have to do the macros and CSM+B separate. There is a reaction between the iron and Phosphates.
