    If micronutrients (especially Fe) are chelated you can pretty much dose both at the same time. To avoid high(ish) concentrations of one or the other you could dose at separate ends of the aquarium.

    If you still want to do it separately, maybe adding the micronutrients in the morning and the macronutrients in the evening is a better way to go. This of course if the light period is during a normal day. With macronutrients you pretty much can assume they stay in solution until used, hence no problems dosing long before lights on. Makes sense ?
