Perhaps someone will post a list as I can't find it right now.
But the EI dosing recommendation is .5 ppm on your type of Fe.
I have two 10g tanks and the one/w Rotala in it needs more than .5 or I get iron
deficiency symptoms. With 1/16 tsp of CSM+B I get .46 of Fe and that still gives me the symptoms if I don't add a 1/64 tsp of the Fe 10% that I use with it.
I don't use injected CO2 so I only do one dose of the EI per week, but do two doses of the CSM+B and the Fe. Because I was told that Micros only last a short time and that it would be best if I did at least two doses of it.
I don't know that any of this will be helpful. I realize that I did not directly answer either of your questions. But thought it may help in some way.

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight the opposite direction...
