First Time Ferts

Ok so I bought Micro/Macro ferts from GLA. Wanting to do a small PPS since I have medium lighting and DIY CO2. I've got this mixed up waiting till tomorrow to dose, just wanted to see what y'all thought of my mixture.

I don't have to use this I just wanted to do something since I bought the ferts without doing my homework. I am starting a little more high-tech tank after Christmas, just wanted to mess around with this tank.

K2SO4 10g
KNO3 10g
KH3PO4 2g

This is mixed in a 500ml container. I went small because I knew I would end up making changes to the next mixture.

Tank 30g Long
Lights 36in Coralife T5 2 21 watt 6700K/Colormax
Filter AquaClear 50
Substrate Gravel
Ferts Florish

I have ferts from GLA too, and I'm going by this PPS-Pro. Works fine for me.
