Purchasing ferts

Hi there, I have a planted 20g long. I have recently redone the substrate with Seachem fluorite red, I've been dosing with Flourish Iron and Flourish Comprehensive Supplement but am looking to start dosing with everything necessary. I have 2 t5ho lights on the tank, elevated a bit to lose a bit of its concentration and also dyi co2 going (sitting at 20-25ppm trying to get a little higher). There's two or three spots that just keep getting algae and I've always had tanks so I think it's time to learn proper technicalities. I've got a site chosen for my ferts I'm just not 100% certain what is necessary, so many sites say so many different things.
Any help would be appreciated, I'll supply the link to the page I will be purchasing from. I'm looking at the powdered KNO3 and K2SO4.
Thank you.

He's a little on the expensive side but considering where you are it would raise the price more to import them.
I will assume you only want those two because you will use the liquids you already have till gone. I don't have a link to the best list but this one will give you all the nutrients that are commonly used.

There is a link to GLA on it also and you can look on there for various fert types.
Should say system types instead of fert types.
EI Estimative index is heavy duty for injected CO2 tanks.
PPS Pro is lighter. I believe that most of the ingredients are the same though.

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...
