Ya, what is "V" I might guess he meant "I" but "I" is nowhere near "V" on the keyboard lol.

I used to dose Iodine for the same reason you are, because the bottle said to. Truth is with feeding and and water changes Iodine supplementation is not important. Like above, if you had a tank full of softies then you may need to dose, but iodine is difficult to measure accurately and it is easy to overdose with supplements. I stopped dosing about 9mos ago and have seen no ill effects from stopping.

I do not believe there is any evidence that proves that iodine is necessary for a healthy reef tank. I do not add it to my tanks, the only additive I do regular is I top off the tank 24/7 with kalkwasser and I do bi-weekly waterchanges.

I agree that less is more when it comes to adding iodine. A big risk with iodine is overdosing, which can easily be toxic to your inverts. We dose iodine, but at around half of the recommended dosage.
