No NO3 how to raise them on ADA fertilization?

In my tank NO3 and PO4 are at 0
I'm actually using ADA bright k + ADA fase 1 ( tank is 3 months old ) + Sachem Phosphorus

I also have ADA Nitrogen but just find out that it doesn't say how much is needed to raise the NO3
I will give it a try, in case I will switch to Sachem or Easy Life Nitrogen should I lower Bright K, since they also add K?

I would also like to start add some iron, but I have red cherry in my tank. Would it be safer to use ADA, Sachem or Easy life iron ( or other brand )?

50L / 13G tank - 16w led - CO2 - Elos Terra and seiryu stones

I can tell you that Seachem Flourish Iron is actually a really good product. The form they use makes it available to the plants across pretty much all pH ranges. Their nitrogen also seems to be more concentrated than their other products.

Insofar as their phosphorus, I like using it to supplement if my levels are a little low (I use Thrive +, it’s all in one), but I wouldn’t rely on it solely unless you have a smaller tank. Two full doses throughout the week last week only gave me a .5 ppm increase.
