2 ppm KH2P04 phosphate 3x a week
2 ppm K2SO4 Potassium 3x a week
30ml seachem flourish 3x a week

30ml of seachem flourish will give you .21 ppm of iron(per dosage)... twice the recommended amount. You will have more than enough iron if you stay with this plan. What kind of substrate are you using? That may also have iron in it.

Also, you can up your potassium levels if you like(I dose 15-20ppm 3 X week). It's pretty much harmless at any amounts. Look for holes in your plants leaves..it's a tell tale sign of potassium shortage.
