    u have to add iodine to ur tank rite? If u have inverts?

    If so...is it safe to use the over the counter iodine drops u get at most pharmacies?

    ya but mix it in a 500ml R.O water bottle and dose 5ml twice weekly, depending on tank size. mine is +-400l

    it's not necessary if u doing enough water changes, as there is traces of iodene in your salt mix. but for larger systems its more of a necessity. it brings out the colours of your inverts and corals...
