Mixing trace elements

I dose a combination of trace elements, kalk, phytoplankton, magnesium etc... Anybody know what you shouldn't mix together all at once or a place that will tell me? Thanks in advance

Phytoplankton is not a trace element. It's a food source...algae.
The first rule of dosing is do not dose anything you are not testing for. As far as mixing elements together, you can't mix an alkalinity supplement with a calcium supplement. They will precipitate into calcium carbonate which will not dissolve in the tank.
