Tank check up and plant food

HOPE THIS IS THE RIGHT SECTION FOR THIS POST
OK HERE ARE SOME STATS
TANK IS 48"X13"X12" ABOUT 26 UK GALLONS
ph7,ammonia 0,nitrite 0,nitrate 10,kh 12 and gh 17
I have 3 48" 36 watt arcadia freshwater tubes on for 5hrs off 2hrs on 5hrs
fluval 205 external filter and 2 nutrafin co2 systems (diy mix) I only have a gravel substratebut my plants are growing very well im cutting back at least every 2 weeks my plants consist of vallis,swords,crypts,augustfolia,java moss,wisteria,java moss,onion plant,floating amazon frogbit and a few other stem plants.I did have alot of algea but i added more plants and the second nutrafin system and daily cleaning and its been gone 3 weeks now(hope it does not come back).
FISH
3 boseman rainbow`s
3 peal gourami`s
5 otto`s
3 emerald cory`s
1 bristlenose
am i OVERSTOCKED i wanted 2 angel fish
The plants in my tank have been growing at a steady rate which could be due to some plant food i bought from ebay of a seller that mixed his own but im nearly out and @6 +2 for delivery for a 60ml bottle i think its a bit expensive and i doubt he is going to tell me the mix if he is making money from it.I have been adding 2 ml every day to my tank as per his instructions and i use food sticks under most of my swords.I am hoping the mix he sold me is the PMDD mix and im going to make my own hopefully unless someone advises me not to,is this mix ok
2 teaspoons of potassium sulfate
1 teaspoon potassium nitrate
2.5 tablespoons magnesium sulfate
1 tablespoon chelated trace elements
300 ml distiled water
so after all this typing basically my questions are
is potassium sulfate the same as sulfate of potash
how much of the PMDD mix should i add on a daily basis
have i room for 2 angel fish
do my stats look ok
and any advice would be great as i want to get it right
thanks
