This is not really true. Dosing iodine can be very destructive in a tank when not monitored very closely. Water changes will be just fine to replace any depleted trace elements, providing you do them on a regualr basis.

It has been in the high 30's lately. No real snow for sledding. I actually grew up in Iowa but moved here in '99. My family and I have always vacationed in MN since I was a toddler.
