Default Is there freshwater tests for iron, magnesium, and calcium?

My plants are showing signs of iron deficiency and possibly calcium.

I have searched online and can't find freshwater calcium or magnesium tests.

There's a saltwater kit by Red Sea that has all 3 tests. I wrote to them to see if can be used on freshwater.

Anyone have ideas? I understand KH and GH can help make sure calcium and magnesium levels are good enough.
Multiple planted tanks 1.75g to 55g.
