    Wow. Great info there. Thank you dude!!! I have learnt a lot, again placing a huge question mark over BALANCE in the reef. Am I skimming too heavy, do I have too much macro algae, am I doing enough frequent water changes etc...

    All the this has to be done in balance, for if you leave one out, other problems occur. Thus again pointing to the absolute wonder of the creation of the ocean life, and that the ocean just does this by itself, where we must put daily effort in to keep it all from falling appart.

    Thanks for this article Mo-G. Again I ask, as I did with copper sulphate based medications, are skimmers really removing them from our systems? Don't skimmers only remove organic compounds?

    Did you start dosing iodine Mo-G? Are you testing, and with which test kit? Lastly(sorry for all the questions), did you have positive results?

    One side effect of iodine overdosing is yellow corals taking on a green fluorescent colour

    personally, I think the skimmer does remove a small %.

    I dose iodine slightly less than manufactures instruction, you do not want to go over board even with a test kit.

    I have the Seachem test kit but use it as a guide. It does over time give you a lower reading even if it is not expired. Another good thing, it has a solution which can be tested against the test kit for accuracy.

    I have used the Salifert but was not happy with it.
