I just recently began to grasp the need for seperate daily and weekly
fertilizers.  If I understand it correctly, iron won't remain in the
water column for more than a day or two, so it needs to be added more
frequently, a little each day instead of once weekly.   I've seen this
in effect when adding fertilizers that contain iron to my tank, I get
hair algae growing for the first day or two, then it disappears until
I add the fertilizer again.
