I still don't know what I'm doing


Can someone thats good with this stuff help me with dosing my 36gal. heavily planted tank I have all of Gregs ferts here is a list:
Mono Potassium Phosphate
Potassium Nitrate
Potassium sulfate
Iron Chelate 10%
Magnesium sulfate

I have gone over the calculator many times but I guess I'm just not that smart when it comes to this I did use the regimine that I found on another site :
Tank's (2)
50%H20 change-weekly
+/-1/2Tsp KN03 3x a week
+/-1/8Tsp KH2P04 3x a week
+/-1/8Tsp K2S04 3x a week
+/-10ml Trace 3x a week
+/-2-4ml Fe/Iron 3x a week
But should I just go by this and not worry that I might be adding to much? I think adding iron 3X a week is to much? But anyway here is what I have for equipment

36gal corner
Eheim 2126 thermofilter {rated for 92gal}
Two 36watt PC's from AH-supply {1}6700K {1} 10K
C02 {yeast}
3" Flourite/gravel mix
2-L134's {Leopard Plecos}
a pair of Apisto dwarf Cichlids
