I add 1 or 2 drops of Lugols Solution to my tank about once every 2 weeks... The stuff is very concentrated. If you plan to use any Iodide/Iodine solution, make sure you follow the directions fully... also, purchase a test kit for it..

Xenia will take a nap sometimes and that is perfectly normal... Mine do the same thing when the lights go out or come on... Then it is back to business pumping....
