    I am currently dosing 10ml of CSM+B while utilizing the EI method. Is it necessary at all to still dose Chelate Iron? How much if so?

    No, but I like to dose 50-% Flourish or alternate dosing with it with the flourish.

    You do not need any extra Fe with CMS+B

    Not a bad idea. I have a couple extra bottles of Flourish. I will probably do a 25/75 Flourish/CSM mix though instead... save a little on the $ :) .

    Doesnt Flourish have a couple added nutrients than CMS has?

    Could you explain why? I am assuming that they are different nutrient ratios between the two, but you know what happens when you assume things.

    It adds a few minor items that the CMS does not and it has a different chelator as well, which may or may not help plants.

    Trace additions are subject to anecdotal suspicion, and I'm not different. I add a little just "in case" and it seems to work, but I have no evdence I'm willing to support for this habit.

    Can I also ask if the same applies to TMG? Would I still need to add let's say Flourish Iron or equivelant Chelated Iron? I have stock of the following:

    TMG
    Flourish
    Flourish Iron
    Traces with Chelated Iron (From Nature Auqarium in Singapore)

    I am currently using TMG only and sometimes adding chelated iron.

    Thank you.
