Default Human iron spplements for aquatic plants

I have a lot of iron supplements that have expired, i have checked about the contents on the internet and seems like they are great for plants. I want you to confirm the info and tell me weather i might go ahed or not and if yes what procedure should i use how much. I have a 10 or 12 gallon bow front aquarium with plants the plants are now acclamated , but a red plant has turned rusty brown. http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...1&d=1482906807

It depends on what form of iron is in there. But what matters maybe even more, what else is in there...

Plants will uptake chelated iron the best. Elemental has little value. Zinc the same. The rest is of no value.

I have used iron from lowes on my tank and have seen huge growth. I have never put in liquid iron but it probably wouldn't hurt since i have plant that dont have a root system. That pic is over 6 months
