? Instructions for Iron test kit? (Nutrafin/Hagen)

Hi everyone,
The instructions for my iron test kit (Nutrafin/Hagen) have been destroyed by water damage, could anyone post them?
Thanks in advance!

I don't have them to post, but I can tell you its pointless to use that kit. The .03 to .1ppm of iron we need to maintain doesn't read accurately on the cheap hobby grade test kits we use.

Rather than test, just dose iron with your trace mix. AS long as you don't see symptoms of iron deficiency, you have enough and shouldn't worry.

Thanks!
