    Hi Guys,

    Does anyone know if it's ok to mix Iodine, Strontium and other trace elements in the same container?

    Purely to reduce the number of caps to open and close when adding

    This is going to be and interesting topic.

    Iodine is available as Potassium iodide (KI) and strontium iodide (SrI2).

    Yip.

    I suppose using dosing pumps would eliminate the inconvenience factor, but it m not quite there yet.

    Would be great, once your system is stable and you know your consumption rates for all additives, to be able to premix the ones that are "premixable" to reduces the number of containers and the number of individual bottles to open and close.
