dry chelated iron is slow release and can be added every few days, iron in flourish needs to be added daily as its pretty much gone within a day, its best to use both
for micro try mixing 50/50 csm+b with millers microplex, then mix that 50/50 with Iron, chelated and gluconate if possible, if not chelated will work fine,, I believe its gluconate, but maybe not, I am sure you can find this by searching the forums on Seachem Iron, or even seachems site
I generally use between 50-60 grams total in 1000mls for ease of dosing
add a bit of excell or glutaraldehyde to the mix to keep if from growing unwanted gunk
also if you wanna add a touch of manganese sulfate 1-2 grams and , gram of borax will work fine for a little extra boron for better levels, I believe you can also add calcium cholride for some calcium
I add GH boost as I find it helps with growth, my water comes out of the tap ~140ppm TDS, the amount of magnesium to calcium is important as well as have a good amount of both
add the micro mix at 2.5 mls daily and it should do great for you, you can do more if you like, I personally dose something similar at 30-45 mls total per week in a 20 long high tech, stuffed with plants+ emersed growth which can take alot of nutrients
