"PurpleUp" says it does contain iodine...but it doesnt have amounts or concentrations for any of its ingrediants...personally - I plan to buy a test kit for iodine (cheap I hope)...Ive heard that its depleted over time...I would guess that adding a little "PurpleUp" nearly every day (or at least toward the end of a water change cycle)o0ught to compensate for iodine (and prob other things as well) just fine (without buying any additional supplements etc...sry just saw this thread was rather old...just googled iodine vs iodide myself...

Regular weekly or biweekly water changes should deal with iodine/iodide just fine.

[P.S. Wow... didn't realize how old this thread was! And the fact that I said the same thing a couple years ago! At least I'm consistent!]
