IMO you should not have to dose iodine. Your PWC gives you all you need.

I read that it would help xenia spread and be good for the whole tank but it seems like everything there is to dose some people say do it and some say don't do you guys dose anything

I have not dosed anything for 13 yrs now. I get all I need from my PWC`s. Check out my tank if you want to see the results. Some folks dose calcium but I dont even need to do that using Oceanic salt.
