Dry Dosing 13% Iron Chelate 13%

What's going on guys, I've been fertilizing my aquarium with the EI Dosing method. I recently received my Iron Chelate 13% from Aquariumfertilizers.com and I'm confused on how much I should dose in my 90 gallon aquarium.

I tried searching and found nothing, I must be missing something. So I come to you experts. How much (in tsp) should I be dosing in my 90 gallon?

If you need any more info I'll be glad to share it.

How are you dosing Macros? How are you dosing Micros? What kind of lights do you have? Are you injecting co2?

In my 75g high tech tank, I am doing about 1/16tsp 3x/week... I like dose Fe heavy though. Some might have other suggestions.

Once you give specs, it will be a little easier to help with suggestions.

1tsp - KN03 3x a week
1/2 tsp - KH2P04 3x a week
1/2 tsp - CSM+B 3x a week

I dry dose, mixing it an empty food bottle. (lol)
48 inch 54w x2 6.5k bulbs (9 hr photo period)
Pressurized Co2 - drop checker is lime green.

Tank is full of plants left to right, still baby plants but growing well.

Here is my take on it. Just a calculation... you still need to figure out what levels you want to reach/maintain.
