Dosing "Schedule"?

Little help here on creating my dosing schedule for my LOWTECH TANK:

Seachem Equilibrium 1x a week, Flourish 2x a week, and Excel daily/every other day
KNO3 and KH2PO4 1x-2x a week

Is there a "best time" to dose these ferts? I do equilibrium right after a 50% water change, but besides that I'm stuck. I heard micro and macro nutrients should be dosed on different days? Or does none of this matter..

Micro and macro separate days prevents the iron and phosphate from reacting with each other. So keep it separate.

Excel should be done just before the lights come on (or soon after) if possible to get the most out of it.
