That's what I use:)

Not really. They suggest a conservative amount for folks that don't have
such high light CO2 etc. If I put a label on it'd read the same pretty much.
I add the traces every 2-3 days. It makes no difference if you do this or do
the daily thing. I do add a lot more than they suggest(for CO2 enriched
tanks). My iron test at 1.0ppm an hour after dosing. It's a bit more tricky
to follow this one(ones) and get a sense of it from testing though. I'll go
back and look at the traces really good sometime. It's really not as
critical as I had thought to know this info but I'm curious anyway.
