Iron in water

I'm moving and I have two fresh water tanks.
The water at the new house has a lot of iron in it.
Will it kill my fish?
How do I fix it??

What iron levels do you have?

I have only looked at this for plants where 2 to 8 ppm is quoted as the limit (for plants but I assume fish would also be fine). I dose at 0.1ppm fe or less but have never had a reading really show from test kit.
