Auto Dosing set up questions

Hi all

I am looking to maybe set up some auto dosing on a new 125 gallon tank and i have a few questions about the set up.

Would it be ok to introduce the fertilizer into the return pipe from my filter.

My idea is to set up two BRS 1.1ml/min dosing pumps, one for micro fert and one for macro fert, to dose once a day before the lights turn on.

I would like to hide the tubing so I was thinking of adding two tees to the filter return pipe with barb fittings to attach the tubing from the dosing pumps to.

Would that solution work or is it a bad idea to inject the ferts into the return lines?
