Not sure about "a little more iron". I used to dose Flourish Iron to add that little more iron, but honestly, just dosing regular amounts of Flourish or CSM should provide sufficient iron.

There are different chelators for iron, which one is best depends a bit on your waters pH/hardness. Since you would dose tiny amounts, making a solution would be better than dosing it dry, which would increase the risk of adding way too much.
