I think the "Plus" stuff is all that's out there.  The micros included 
are:  Iron (0.10%), Manganese (0.05%), and Zinc (0.05%).  I don't think any 
of these are going to cause problems considering the smallness of the dose 
involved --- I've been pushing it lately with 6 drops, but about 2-3 drops 
per week in my 20 gallon seems to be plenty and my tap/change water is 
virtually devoid of phosphates, so one could probably get by with less 
Schultz fertilizer if some PO4 is already present.

Yep...N - P - K.  The numbers are percentages.
