I have a little. I currently have a Red Sea iodine test kit, but I want something a bit easier to use, and quicker.. Yeah, I'm lazy... LOL

there are very few reasons to dose iodine, your water changes replenish it, it is a poison, too much and you wipe out your tank, I have a tank full of Xenia's and everyone says to dose iodine for them, but you don't, water changes is all 90% of reefers need to do, dosing anything just complicates the whole process and makes keeping parameters balanced a lot harder. Why are you dosing?

I don't regularly dose. I checked it the other day and it was at a .03? or .3 or whatever it is supposed to be it was a tad bit low. So I added just a little bit. It was iodide I added. It's been a week since I changed water. My Mag was a bit low and calcium was tad bit low as well. I usually change water every 2 weeks. I use Red Sea Coral Pro.

I bought the Hanna iodine checker. It showed I was on the high side of iodine, so I stopped dosing.
