Dosing iron for Amazon Sword

Should it be dosed everyday for them? I've got 3 of them in my tank. They have root tabs and I'm dosing excel everyday. I've been dosing every other day. They seem to be doing ok. Just wondering if it's enough iron for them.

Seems like enough iron. What kind of lighting do you have.

I never dose iron with my Amazon swords before. They grew just fine with some osomcote plus root tabs and T5HO.
