??? Strodium? That's not an element.

Strontium is not needed in planted tanks.

The other stuff is all good though (calcium, magnesium, potassium), but I think you're better off just leaving the reef stuff to reefs and not trying to carry it over and have any unwanted side effects. If you want something that does something similar but without the strontium, you should look into SeaChem Equilibrium. It is essentially a GH booster made by Seachem, although if you go with a high tech tank and EI dosing, you may want to buy Tom Barr's GH booster instead, which has similar things as Equilibrium.
