Seachem Flourish vs. Flourish Trace?

Here is Flourish:
Guaranteed Analysis:
Guaranteed Analysis: Total Nitrogen 0.07%
Available Phosphate (P2O5) 0.01% Soluble Potash 0.37%
Calcium (Ca) 0.14% Magnesium (Mg) 0.11%
Sulfur (S) 0.2773% Boron (B) 0.009%
Chlorine (Cl) 1.15% Cobalt (Co) 0.0004%
Copper (Cu) 0.0001% Iron (Fe) 0.32%
Manganese (Mn) 0.0118% Molybdenum (Mo) 0.0009%
Sodium (Na) 0.13% Zinc (Zn) 0.0007%

Here is Flourish Trace:
Guaranteed Analysis Boron (B) 0.0028% Cobalt (Co) 0.00003% Copper (Cu)
0.0032% Water
Soluble Copper (Cu) 0.0032% Manganese (Mn)
0.0085% Water
Soluble Manganese (Mn) 0.0085% Molybdenum (Mo) 0.0003% Zinc (Zn)
0.0169% Water
Soluble Zinc (Zn) 0.0169% Rubidium (Rh) 0.000008% Nickel (Ni) 0.000003% Vanadium (V) 0.000002%

After reading those charts... seems Flourish has more stuff in it?

** I'm looking for micronutrients for my plants... because I already bought Flourish Excel, Flourish Phosphorus, Flourish Nitrogen, and Flourish Potassium as my macro.

So which one you guys prefer? THanks a bunch!

All the threads I've read points to Flourish. From the looks of it, trace is just a watered down flourish. I can't quote/source anyone, but a few of the threads I've read mentioned that your fish food and/or tap water provides those that are in trace but not in flourish. Hopefully that made sense ^^
