enough iron from CSM+B

Hello

I am currently using the EI dosing method and was wondering if dosing just CSM+B will cover all the iron I need or do I need to dose extra iron also. The EI chart I found told me to dose only CSM+B. Any input appreciated thanks

Here's the Plantex analysis...

Regular CSM / CSM+B
Fe 7.0% 6.53%
Mn 2.0% 1.87%
Mg 1.5% 1.40%
Zn 0.4% 0.37%
Cu 0.1% 0.09%
Mo 0.05% 0.05%
B 0% 1.18%

As far as dosing extra Iron, it would be contingent upon the plants you kept, or if you're noticing any deficiencies.

Ok I will keep that in mind the fertilator said that I am adding .22 ppm everytime I dose CSM+B at 1/2 tsp into my 100 gallon.

I dose CSM+B per EI instructions on two tanks. I also adding a dose of Seachem Iron 1 to 2x per week. Seems my plants always appear "extra green" after I do this.
