That's what I do in my 12g and it's working out pretty well! Make sure you keep up with the WC's though! I do mine on Sundays then does macros right afterwards. I'd also suggest adding Iron on your micros days.

It does contain Iron. I wouldn't call it sufficient though. I find the extra Fe really makes my plants stay nice and healthy, and I only add 1mL of it two out of the three days I dose my micros.
