Is my pps pro dosing correct?

I'm using the formula for 500ml bottles on the GLA packages.

My tank is 38g. w/CO2

It is about 1/3 plants. See my profile for plant list and photo of tank.

Should I dose the full 1ml per 10g water or should I use less because the tank is not heavily planted?

TIA

dose 1ml per 10g regardless if you have high light or low light, tons of co2 or no co2, one pant or a hundred.. its the minimal required amount of nutrients in the water column for plants.
