reliable Iron test?

Hi,
I have very high iron in my tank 40 micrograms/L . Normal is 0.1-0.5 . SeaChem tested it at 0.1 lol. ATI tested it at 40. I'll go with ATI.
But for home test, what can I use?

TY!

Are the units the same? The SeaChem should be in ppm. What units does the ATI form give?

OMG Bertoni . SeaChem Iron test is clearly for fresh water. Where you may want much higher iron for planted aquariums. Yes that test is ppm. NOT ppbillion as the ATI is. Thank you !
