switching from pps pro to pmdd EI

Hello, I was wondering if some one would check my math for me. I want to switch from pps pro to pmdd + po4 EI style.Here's what I have come up with:

I have 2 500ml bottles and a 50 g tank

Bottle 1

k2so4 7g
kno3 30g
kh2po4 7.5g
mgso4 5g

dosing 30ml

Bottle 2

csm+b 20g

dosing 15 ml

does this sound correct?
I want to start daily and taper off if need be

I want my lights to be my only limiting factor, currently I run 2 t5ho 54w for 5 hrs
CO2 is at 30 ppm as far as i can tell from drop checker and kh/ph chart

my only concern is the kno3 dosing, currently i stay consistantly up at 40 to 50 ppm before WC and get down to about 30 ppm after. I currently believe that I am bottlenecking with current ferts and aren't able to uptake any significant no3. Any help is greatly apreciated, Thanks
