Iron

Bear with me, I'm a newbe to the ultra geeky world of ferts. I have a gallon of iron that I use in my garden. The analysis is:
FeSo4 -12.6%
Fe - 4.6%
Mg - 1.0%

Is this something that could be dosed in an aquarium? I've been using Flourish Iron and am just about out. Hoping to save a few bucks.

My fert routine is:
37 gal, pH 6.4, kH 5, EI, high lighting
Day one: 50% WC, 1/4 tsp KNO3, 5ml Flourish Comprehensive, 5ml Flourish Iron, 1.3ml PO4
Day three:1/4 tsp KNO3, 5ml Flourish Comprehensive, 5ml Flourish Iron
Day five:1/4 tsp KNO3, 5ml Flourish Comprehensive, 5ml Flourish Iron, 1.3ml PO4
Day seven:1/4 tsp KNO3, 5ml Flourish Comprehensive, 5ml Flourish Iron

I'll take suggestions about my routine as well. Thanks in advance
