Fetrilon Chelate from BASF for PMDD

I live in Bangalore,this is my first posting.
I am in process of rolling-out my own PMDD, and was trying to get Plantex CSM, but we donot have dealers for Plantex-CSM in Bangalore, however we have sales outlets for BASF-Germany products, BASF dealers in Bangalore deals with four chelated micronutrient mix, the details follows

Fetrilon Combi 1
Fe EDTA 4%
Mn EDTA 4%
Zn EDTA 1.5%
Cu EDTA 1.5%
Mo 0.1%
B 0.5%
Mg 9%
Sulphur 3%

Fetrilon Combi 2
Fe EDTA 4%
Mn EDTA 3%
Zn EDTA 4%
Cu EDTA 0.5%
Mo 0.05%
B 1.5%
Mg 1.3%
Sulphur 2.6%

Fe EDTA 5%
Mn EDTA 5%
Zn EDTA 1%
Cu EDTA 2.5%
Mo 0.035%
B 2.5%

Fetrilon -13
Fe EDTA 13%

I have planned to use Fetrilon -13 as a source to increase the Fe concentration in PMDD, but cannot decide on the product that should be used for traces.It'll be great if planted gurus can assist me in deciding on the above products.

Of all the above products, I feel "Fetrilon Combi 2" has the nearest concentrations suggested by Sears-Collin but it has higher Cu and Zn concentrations (Cu 0.5% or/and Zn 4%), Will this have any adverse effect on plants and fishes ?
