Make sure to post your results and how much you add. I'm always curious about the outcome of such additons.

Do you not add P. sulfate? Or any kind-of sulfate?

I've never checked to see exactly what micro nutrients are in the CSM+B mix but if it's not in that mix then I don't get that in my tank.

I believe they refer to the sulfates as secondary Macro, I really need to look into it again!

You add the K2SO4 for the potassium, not the sulfate. You normally don't run into sulfur related deficiencies in planted tanks for whatever reason.

Does potassium nitrate also add potassium to some degree? This is already included in the supplements.
