Every year during tax season, I don't do a water change for 4 months as I don't have time. I've never lost any inverts due to Iodine depletion. In fact, Iodine doesn't help inverts molt....it CAUSES them to molt.

Going 4 months without a PWC does not prove that you are doing anything right, it just says you were lucky this time. It would be like me running through a mine field and making it through and then saying I told you there were no mines in there when we know there is. And BTW Iodine does aid in the molting process. This was under a certain invert in Liveaquaria. "Most of the diet will consist of food it scavenges, but supplementing with iodine-rich foods will help ensure proper molting."



You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
