no not at all. your salt mix will more that take care of your iodine. my shrimp molt about every other time i do a water change. the only threat to a FOWLR tank is the fish you put in there. your crab/shrimp/snails may become a treat.

I too agree. No need to supplement iodine. Your PWC`s will take care of that. How often are you doing them?

At one point I had Bubble Algae REALLY bad, I didn't even like looking at my tank. There were thick sheets of solid bubble algae. Read my post at the bottom of this thread, How can I control Green bubble algae? This is how I got rid of it and it never came back. I wouldn't worry about the few you popped underwater. I think the link that Melosu posted was what I implemented.
