Iron dosing with Elatine Tiandra

Hey everyone I had a quick question regarding dosing iron with elatine tiandra. I acquired elatine tiandra about a month ago and saw very little growth initially. From what I've read this plant is heavy iron req.
My 40gal breeder has PPS pro along with pressurized co2 at about 2bps. I have been using brightwell aquatics iron bottle. Dosed about a single mL a day and definitely saw improved growth as well as the yellow in the leaves disappearing. Now the leaves are turning yellow a bit again ESP new growth areas.
Should I be increasing the iron dosage? As I do not have a iron test kit, I am starting with a low dosage.

I have high light and large plant and bio load
