Pick up some Epson salts for magnesium.

CLICK HERE and download the calculator for dosing the nutriets. It is a priceless tool for calculating how much you need to dose and how to make you get the right amounts.

Also, a key things that many forget is DO NOT dose phosphates with your iron/trace fertilizers. The iron can precipitate out and become useless to the plants. I have actually watched this happen in my tanks when I didn't know better.

I think you have the bases covers with the magnesium but with that high of light as I have stated before you will need CO2 sooner or later or a good source for Flourish Excel.
