I'm using iron as a baseline for the tracemix content in the tank. I 
believe the mix is prepared on that basis. The reason for the kit is to 
determine consumption and therefore a delivery rate.  I do hear you, as 
it's best to keep iron at the low end of the scale. The idea behind the 
seachem kit was to get more of an idea other than [not] enough iron. I 
found a bulletin on their site which determins my reagent needs to be 
replaced. Gotta love expired reagent right out of box.
