Fertilizing with RCS

Hi:

I have a 10 gallon with RCS (and Endlers). It is medium planted. Black sand substrate. No CO2.

I plan on using Excel and dry ferts.

Since the dry fert quantities are so small, can I dose once a week after my 25% WC?

I was thinking (once a week)

KNO3 1/4 tsp
KHP4 1/8 tsp
CSM+B 1/8 tsp

What do you think?

Thanks!

I do full EI dosing in my shrimp tank with no side effects and very healthy plants. No CO2/Excel either...just soil with a sand cap. I've never had good results with Excel and shrimp.
