Thats a very wide range of products. You might want to narrow it down a bit.

You will likely need to significantly increase the dosage of your fertilizers. With a high light aquarium, your plants will have an increased need for nutrients. Unfortunately, most commercially available fertilizers are quite dilute.

You can try starting off with the recommended dose and go from there. Observations of the health of your plants will indicate whether they need more nutrients, or if you are providing enough.

Alternatively, it is possible to work through all the math to figure out how much you are dosing, and then adjust from there, based on theoretical values.

I have been using the full line of Seachem products on my high light/high tech and I just go by the dosage on the bottles and dose on the days they suggest on their website. My low light tanks (1 with Co2 and 1 without) just get Flourish, Excel, and Trace). Have't really had any algae problems and have pretty good growth compared to when I used dry ferts in the past.

I'm a horticulturist/garden designer and have always preferred going with a lighter dosage of fertilizer for most plants so I have stuck to the same with my aquatic plants and it has worked for me.
