AQUANATURE REEF IODIDE is an important element for invertebrates and many soft corals , particularly xenia, as well as gorgonians, hard corals, tunicates, marine worms such as feather dusters, sponges, macroalgae, and crustaceans, particularly shrimp. REEF IODIDE is a concentrated stabilized potassium iodide source for reef aquaria that will restore and maintain iodide levels to those found in natural sea water. It is formulated to provide a safe source of iodide that will not convert to toxic free iodine under storage or reef conditions. Iodine is as toxic as chlorine and should never be used in a reef system. However, iodide is as safe as chloride.
Iodine, while present in better salt mixes, is rapidly removed through ozone, skimming, carbon and other filtration and used up by inhabitants. It is necessary, therefore, to supplement it for maximum invertebrate and algae health, particularly if you have strong lighting. recommends that you maintain about .04 to .06 mg/l (ppm) iodide level in your aquarium.
Shake well before use. Push 1 times equal to (5 ml) per 20 us gallons (80 L) daily to raise iodide by 0.10 mg/L. If necessary, adjust amount so that iodide reads 0.06–0.08 mg/L 6–12 hours after the last amount. Thereafter, use this amount daily and check iodide twice a month.
Use AQUANATURE CALCIUM & AQUANATURE MAGNESIUM & AQUANATURE STRONTIUM supplementation for coral growth.
Store in a cool,dry place.
