I need a recommendation for a nitrate test kit that measures to 1mg/L.  My 
current Tetra test kit only measures within ranges (0-12.5 mg/L for 
example, for the low range).

Also, what is the consensus on a good Fe test kit?  The Seachem is not bad, 
but takes over 30 minutes to react with chelated iron.  Are there some that 
measure to the tenth of a mg/L, and only take 15 minutes or less?
Thanks for your help,
