APC calc

Someone recommended the calc on APC on another post and i must admit i had never used it. it is very easy to use but the one thing i did not see on there was the EDTA FE 13% i use. I saw the DTPA 10% but i'm not sure if i can use the same measurements. So can someone please help me determine the proper dosage for my 13%?

according to that fert cal i would be dosing the following:

1tsp kno3
1/8tsp kh2po4
3/4tsp k2so4
3tsp of caso4
--I've never used calcium before but 3 tsp seems like a lot of fertz? can someone please let me know if i'm not doing my calculations correct. i would get the calcium from here, but on that website it just says caso4, while on the calculator it says (caso4)2.h20, but i'm assuming that's the same thing.
1tsp mgso4.7h20
1/8tsp csm+b

and finally the EDTA FE 13% which i couldn't find the option for.

Any help is greatly appreciated. if you need the link to the APC calc let me know and i can link it, if that's ok on here of course.

EDIT: My tank is a 55g
