I use the EI dosing schedule. I do see other dry ferts like CAS04, CAN03, Iron Chelate, MNS04.. there are a few more. When I first started with EI dosing, there was nothing mentioned about anything other than NPK+CSM+B..

do I need all of the other stuff?

150. have you tried increasing your magnesium levels with epsom salts. they are very cheap, i previously had a hair, thread algae problem and 90% of my plant load is stem. apparently mangesium and iron were my limiting factors. i increased magnesium and my plants new leaves grew faster but immediately more yellow. i've added more iron now with the magnesium and algae seems to be going away with faster plant growth. i use csm+B i haven't tried dosing more csm yet to see what that changes but that's next on the list
