Fertilizer: Need some help on what to get

Hey everyone! A friend sent me some pre-mixed fertilizers awhile back, but I'm now out of everything. I need to stock up on stuff, but I'm not quite too sure what to get. I'm planning on ordering some stuff from Greg Watson.

Phosphates: For Phosphates, I'll use K2PO4.
Nitrates: KNO3
For Potassium, should I get some K2SO4? I have some Flourish Potassium lying around too, but would K2SO4 be worth the $3 investment?

Iron/Traces is what I'm stuck on. I've heard CSM+B is good, but I've also heard Flourish works a lot better for traces. Is there any truth in this/is one better than the other?

For iron, is added iron nescessary? I know Greg sells Iron Chelate, but I've read that this isn't the best source of iron and something like Flourish Iron would be much better as an iron supplement.

Any advice on this stuff would be greatly appreciated!
