Plantex CSM+B Plus Iron Mixture

Has anyone mixed it before? I followed Rex's guide and mixed 2 table spoons of it with 500ml of water.

I just started dosing today, how is it doing for the ones who've experienced it?

havent used the +iron one yet, but Plantex has appeared to work quite well for me in the past. been using it for over a year now.

Are you dosing the 5ml per 20g's of your mix recommendation?

I'm using it, but I'm dosing it dry. (1/32th tsp per 10 gallons). Now my tank is still new, and I have flourite substrate. I was getting a BBA (some say can be caused by excess Fe) problem on some of the slower growing plants, and original stems from the store.
This weekend, I trimmed, and removed all the affected leaves, and so far everything looks good.

I like it. I`ve seen better growth than with Flourish, but I have to admit that, given the price difference, I`m a little more generous with the CSM+B with extra iron than the Flourish.
