Iron is one of the most important aquatic plant nutrients and thus ought to be present in the water in sufficient levels at all times. Standard iron tests for aquaristic purposes often have a very short useful life or are quite imprecise. The Visocolor ECO tests by Macherey-Nagel are colorimetric and unite a high precision with a long useful life. They are excellent for exact determination of the iron levels in an aquarium.
Triazine method: iron(II) ions react with a triazine derivative to form a violet complex. Iron(III) ions are reduced and thus also determined.
