dry fertz help

I bought some dry fertz from a fellow member and have been mixing them daily. i am getting tired of doing this everyday so i would like to pre-mix them in the two bottles i bought. I have a 10 gallon tank.

my bottles holds 355ml of liquid and squirts out 1.5ml
i was told to dose:
mon, wed, fri
1/64tsp kno3 potassium nitrate
1/32tsp kh2p04 mono potassium phosphate
1/32tsp k2s04 potassium sulfate
tue, thur, sat
1/64tsp csm+b
1/32tsp micro miller microplex
1/32tsp iron chelate 10% (im not sure if im supposed to dose 3 times a week)

how many tsp do i put in each bottle so i can use 1 or 2 squirts per dose?

i checked out many fertz calcutators. many didnt allow me put the 1/32 or 1/64 tsp or how many ml in a squirt so i thought it was pointless. i did just find this site: https://sites.google.com/site/aquati...r/home/pps-pro
which is very helpful.

Oh, if you have an iphone or touch, you can download mistergreen's fertilizer calculator. You can do teaspoons.
