Does anybody know of a good iron test that measures the dissolved iron content accurately?

Sorry, I've never tested Fe levels. Do you suspect a deficiency? What are your tank specifications?

Many people have had success with the seachem FE test kit.

It will only set you back $10 at pet solutions.

Here is the direct link.

Thanks for the replys. I will order that test kit from seachem. Thats the one I've been hearing about. I had a test kit but the sensitivity was too low for levels below .5 mg/l.
I do not suspect a deficiency but I am supplementing with flourish iron and I want to make sure I am adding the right amounts.
