Daily dosing CSM+B EDTA Iron?

My tank water pH goes from 8.0 -> 6.6 with CO2. From what I understand, the edta chalate iron in CSM+B will either be unavailable or precipitate in higher pH, which suggests a DTPA form of iron would be superior.

However, if I dose the CSM+B daily after pH has dropped, but before lights on, would this not be an effective way to deliver iron?

I have been dosing standard EI and that prescribes 3x/week alternating with macros. Is there any reason NOT to dose micros on the same day with macros? (Interaction, etc.)
