Thinking about making a mix of the following:

1 lb Miller Micro
1 lb CSM+B
1/2lb Ferrous Gluconate
1/2lb 13% Iron Chleate

Anyone see any problems with making this micro mix?

I don't see why not. I mix my trace so others can dose it when I'm gone.

I dose a CSM+B plus Fe solution almost daily. (do forget from time to time)
500ml bottle (I double everything but the Glut for the 1000ml bottles)
14.4g CSM+B
35g GLA Fe 11% DPTA
30ml Excel (actually 1.5% Glut)
Mixing a new bottle of soup it takes about two days for everything to stay in solution.
I shake the bottle a couple of times a day and turn it upside down to see if anything settles.
Currently doing about 5ml/20g per day.

Millers is very close to CSM+B isn't it? or I missed something
Dry in the jars I noticed my trace tends to separate into layers just sitting on the shelf.

My understanding is millers is slightly better has a few higher concentrations of micros. It is green in color compared to the CSM+B. I mostly want to do this as the wife will be helping with dosing during the week and by having it all mixed will ensure she can just scoop some out and dump it in the tank.
