Iodine testing?

I've been looking at iodine dosing but can't find any tests? Anyone know of any or any reasons why I don't need to do it? I'm pretty sure water changes will maintain it? I have a pulsing Xenia that I've noticed has stopped pulsing as actively as usual. Read online this can be due to lack of iodine?

Seachem makes one.

I do not recommend you target specific iodine or dose. If you notice a deficiency simply perform a water change, as this is likely not the only element that is low... I would expense other products for other elements before getting the iodine test kit.. You could also try positioning the xenia is a lower flow lagoon area..

I too would recommend just doing a water change. PWC`s will give you all you need in iodine for your tank. The only time I would recommend dosing Iodine is if you had wall to wall packed SPS in your tank. Try the frequent PWC`s first.
