I agree with checking this. Good starting point

Iodine as a dietary suppliment has also been found to help with HLLE. However, when not used properly, it can do more harm then good for the tank.

Are you saying just add to the tank or are you saying to soak the food in it? Dietary suuplement

It took her a little while but she really started eating the Spinach. I have also been giving her a half sheet of nori everyday. She looks better I can visibly tell that she has been eating. This might be a silly question but where can I get Vitamin C is that somthing the lfs would have or do I look elsewhere.

Thanks,

Kent Marine puts out a marine vitamin C, I cannot remember the exact name of the product.

Mmm, this might be a dumb question but... Can we soak fish food in lemon juice to increase the amount the vitamin C in the food? I read a book about clownfish and the guy who was breeding clowns makes his own food w/ lemon juice in it.

It works with garlic. Might start with a small sample to see if the fish likes it, and make sure it doesn't affect your pH.

Sorry, should have clarified...I used it as a dietary suppliment by adding a drop to my food (along with selcon, garlic and vita-chem) and letting it soak. I can not emphisize enough that you should stckly monitor the iodine levels in your tank if you do this. it helped my regals HLLE tremendously. However, stray voltage could have also been the cause. I replaced two of my poerheads at the same time that were making funny noises.
