Best time to Dose my Tank??

I fertilize my 6g tank with the following:
Iron 1 ml daily
Excel 1 ml daily
Flourish 1ml twice a week
Flourish Trace 1.5ml twice a week

I usually dose my tank between 6 - 8 pm but is there a specific time that i should be dosing so the plants benefit the most?

I've heard some say that it's best to dose before your lights go on, but others have said that it doesn't matter when you dose.

I just dose at a time where it has become part of a routine, usually first thing when I get up. Just seems easier to remember.

No specific time is required; dose whenever it is convenient for you.

It is more important that you remember to dose.
