I didn't either until I took them out to get a dead fish that had lodged itself under the bottom rocks. I had to take almost every single rock out, and the water level went down dramatically. That's when the light-bulb went off

Don't ever add anything to your tank that you aren't absolutely sure you need, via test kits. Of course an abundance of iodine can kill inverts. What do you think the coral dip Lugols is? Nothing but iodine. Your LFS gave you bad information.
Everything you need is in your salt mix anyway, iodine included.
I would do a few 20% water changes to remove it.

Are there iodine test kits? It's not in either of my kits...

I don't use mix; I buy ocean water

I've need heard of Lugols...
I've barely had my tank since November so I'm not so privy to everything but I'm researching lots and learning as it comes up.

There are iodine test kits - I just got one. And, for me, I'm not adding anything w/out testing anymore thanks to the cleaner shrimp incident. Besides, I have so few corals and I do weekly water changes so I doubt I'll need to add anything for now.

Yeah I only have one tiny GSP colony (it's out) and one medium GSP colony (not out)

That would be proof to me that you don't need to add anything. Both colonies would be lacking if there was some massive deficiency. It's probably a matter of placement. flow and/or lighting.
