Additional Iron (Fe)?

I'm sure this question has been asked before, but I'd appreciate some help. I see that the CSM+B mix contains roughly 7% Iron. Is this usually enough for a heavily planted tank, or do most of you find that you're still having to dose additional Fe?

I was using Flourish Comp, but noticed that it only contains .32% Fe. It seems to me like .32% is a pretty low level of Iron for a micro mix.

Thoughts and/or experiences?

Depends on the type of plants you have, some plants are iron thirsty some are not.

when playing with iron, it's best to get a iron tester, so you always know your iron levels, as you know to much iron in your tank can harm your fish.
