Ei fertilizer mixture 1000ml help

Hello everyone! I've been browsing this forum for about 6 months now, ive been reading and getting a lot of good information. I've been dosing my tanks ei daily mixing single batches every morning, so I finally pulled the trigger and bought 3x 1000mL bottles from gla. I've mixed my batches this Saturday and dosed my macros (there was some un dissolved salts on the bottom of the container) Sunday I dosed my microplex and 11% DTPA FE. Today in the morning I went to add my macro and when I shook the container there was a thin layer of one if the salts that broke free from the bottle, I think I somehow messed up my measurements when I did the mix. I wanted to see if someone could help me out and look over my calculations. Thanks in advance!

Macro: 1000mL container, 15mL dose into 20long
*KNO3 - 61.72g
*K2SO4 - 84.35g
*KH2PO4 - 9.4g
*40mL glutaraldehyde 2.6%
*-960+ mL di water

Micro: 1000mL container, 15mL dose into 20long
*Miller Microplex - 63.09g
*60 mL glutaraldehyde 2.6%
*-940+ mL di water
(I know there is about 163% Cu but I don't have any sensitive fish there)

Iron supplement 1000mL container, 15mL dose into 20long
*DTPA Fe 11% - 22.94g
*60mL glutaraldehyde 2.6%
*-940+ mL di water
( I think I'm way overdosing on iron )


Here are the specs of my 6 months old tank:
20long
Dual t5ho 8hrs photo period
Pressurized co2 42ppm (kh7 , ph 6.7)
MGOPS with sand cap
Osmocote+ root tabs
