Iodine Allergy Question

Hi.
I am allergic to Iodine and I understand some Corals need Iodine. I wonder if anyone knows if I'd have a problem when I poor anything with Iodine into my tank?

There is no need to dose any iodine into your tank. Your salt mix will replace iodine in trace amounts during each wc.

I thought that was the case, but was starting to research, thank you. Now, I won't worry about my allergy.

As a matter of fact most salt mixes will take care of most if not all trace elements that need replenishing.

I have never seen a system that was low on iodine if frequent water exchanges are maintained. Funny thing is my Hanna iodine test goes to 0.0ppm and natural iodine levels are below this.
