Yep. Don't dose anything you don't have a test kit for and aren't sure you need. It's a bad idea.

I've heard that Iodine really only enhances color. I use Aqua Vitro 'Fuel' as an additive for my corals, my hammer and heliofungia have exploded since I started using it. All my corals like it, but those two have really shown growth.

Salifert has more accuracy but most reefers don't have to worry about iodine since salt mix has all the elements that will replenish with a pwc.
