dosing iron

Should this be done daily with other ferts? What level should the iron be at?

Yes it can be dosed daily, I would not dose it
at the exact same time as mAcros just for the
sake of not doing so, but you absolutely can.

I can not give you a specific number and be
confident that, that would be your target,
the amounts I have listed in the sticky for the
corresponding tank size will suffice, you can
divide it for daily dose.

As long as you have some in the water column
is what the plants care about not numbers.
The rest is light and C02

Doesn't phosphate cause iron to precipitate out of solution? Thought I read that somewhere on this forum.
