 !.  You  have  quite  nice  growth  considering  you  are  using  DIY  CO2.  
 
 2.  You  do  not  need  to  dose  extra  0.02  ppm  Fe  for  now,  just  dose  0.02  ppm  trace  daily.
 
 3.  Since  you  can  not  measure  calcium,  dose  4-5  ppm  during  every  water  change.  It  is  not  only  for  any  possible  future  calcium  deficiency,  but  maintaining  a  decent  level  of  calcium  sometimes  protect  aquatic  life  from  excess  trace  toxicity.
 
 4.  As  you  have  very  softwater,  it  is  important  to  know  the  KH.  In  fact,  KH  is  the  only  thing  you  should  really  test  quite  often,  not  pH  or  GH.  As  you  are  using  CO2,  KH  of  your  water  I  guess  is  less  than  1.  Which  means  pH  is  also  very  low,  and  at  very  low  pH,  iron  and  other  chelated  metals  become  even  more  stable  and  remain  in  the  water  column.  That  is  why  in  Brighty  K,  ADA  uses  potassium  carbonate  which  not  only  raises  potassium  but  also  KH  of  the  water.  I  understand  during  the  lockdown,  it  is  probably  not  possible  to  get  a  test  kit.  But  please  remember  to  check  your  KH  from  time  to  time  and  raise  it  above  2  with  some  kind  of  carbonate  salt.
 
 5.  Stick  to  your  lean  dosing  and  let  us  know  after  2  weeks  how  it  goes.

 Ok,  i  am  dosing  calcium  using  calcium  carbonate  dry  dosing.  6ppm  weekly  after  water  change.  Its  solubility  is  low  about  15mg/l  .  But  i  am  dosing  only  6ppm  so  no  problem.  Hope  it  raises  kh.  Although  it  makes  water  cloudy  for  half  an  hour.
