Re: [APD] no3 test kits.

I'd use the Seachem, Hach, or LaMotte kits for testing
nitrate.  For iron, if I thought I had to test for it, I'd
use the Hach kit.

An iron kit needs to be able to give accurate readins at
very low levels. The cheap ones I've used, basically said
"a lot" or "none" -- on second thought, that margin of
error might be good enough for iron where even a little bit
is usually plenty.

I know I can get accurate readings in useful ranges with
SeaCehm, Hach, and LaMotte kits. The only cheap kits I
trust much are the KH  and GH test kits, like Tetra's or
Aquarium Pharmeceutical.
