Dosing iodine

My lfs recommended dosing iodine once a week with E S V potassium iodide. My snowflake polyps havent been opening so they said this will probably help. They said its also good for LPS and soft corals. I bought some and thought I'd give it a try but after researching a little more, I'm a little scared to do it. I was only going to do half the recommended dose on the bottle. Will it help my mushrooms palys and zoas?

If your dosing you need to test for it as well, however I think it's a waste of time as this trace element is replenished in water changes

I really don't know but I bought some yellow star polyps at my lfs and they also recommended to start with the starter kit for reef which has calcium,iodine, and molybdenum and since I bought the polyps and till now they have way more extension than they had at the store they look really nice now.

Okay. Im trying it. It says the recommended dosage is 1 drop per gallon per week. I only did 15 drops. I'll see if anything changes in a couple weeks. If nothing changes I'll go up a couple more drops.
