hackteck: seachem and salifert are both good test kits. Salifert being the better and also the most expensive. My iodine and phosphate test are seachem. All my outher test are salifert. Seachem makes a good general multi-test kit.

seahorse Stick with a regular WC schedule and you will be fine. How long have you had the seahorse? They are very hard to keep. Especially if not in a species only tank. Good luck with it.

This isn't my first seahorse - I had one in my 55 gal. years ago.

Thanks for your advice!

Potassium Iodide is an iodine "salt". It is just another way of getting iodine into the water. Elemental iodine is fairly chemically reactive and you would not find it in a pure state naturally. Because of it reactivity, it would be most likely found as a "salt." In sea water, iodine is bound up as a salt, not in pure form. Pure iodine in pretty rugged stuff, chemically speaking.
