Help with dosing?? So lost!!

So currently I have a 6 gallon fluval tank setup (upgrading to an 11.4 Mr. Aqua in the next week) My HC started to turn brown and melt away. At this point is it worth saving trying to save it or start over? L I did not fertilize but now I just purchased a green leaf aquarium kit and I am so lost on where I begin to fertilize L Iíve read articles online and forums but I am still lost.
In the kit I have
1) Mono Potassium Phosphate (KH2PO4)
2) Plantex CSM+B
3) Potassium Nitrate (KNO3)
4) Potassium Sulfate (K2SO4)

Plants: HC
Co2: 1 bpm
Ph: 6.0
Lights upgraded 2 MR16ís
1 13watt fluorescent bulbs
Light Schedule: 12noon-7pm

I will test my water tonight and get readings.

Can someone please break this down please? Or tell me what method they use or what I should do? From Start to beginning/weekly/daily.. ?
Iíve even see some calculators that you input your readings in?
