I was out looking for Fe test kits last week, I saw some Red Sea 
"Freshwater test kits" which included Fe and CO2, at two separate fish 
stores, and all had expiration dates of 1998!  They do have a faint 
depressed date stamp on the bottom that is hard to see.  You have to look 
at it at the right angle to read it.
