    Why is iodine required?

    Corals might require iodine as a de-toxifier, as a protection against uv-radiation and as a natural defense against many parasites. Iodine is present in NSW (Natural Sea Water) in a very low concentration (0.06 mg/L or 0.06 ppm). Iodine occurs in NSW as different species. These include iodide, iodate, molecular iodine and hypoiodite. Generally when we say iodine we mean one or more iodine species without a clear distinction being made. NSW contains predominantly iodate and to a lesser extent iodide. There is however a misconception among many hobbyists that iodide predominates in NSW. Research by Salifert and universities has proved this to be untrue.

    About Natural Iodine

    Salifert's Natural Iodine supplement contains a large portion iodate and also some iodide in similar proportions as natural sea water. All ingredients are of a pharmaceutical quality or even better. This ensures that no unwanted elements are added to your valuable aquarium.

    Other requirements: For great results try also our high-quality calcium, strontium, alkalinity and trace elements supplements.

    Directions: Shake before use. Regular maintenance: Dose 5 ml per 100 liters (25 gallons) once every 2 or 3 weeks. Adjust dosage according to individual requirements (use an iodine test, e.g., Salifert’s Iodine Profi-Test). Every 5 ml per 100 liters (25 gallons) will increase the iodine concentration (that is iodide +iodate) by approx. 0.04 mg/L.
