What is Seachem Reef Iodide?

Reef Iodide is a concentrated (8,000 mg/L) and stabilised potassium iodide source for reef tanks that will restore and maintain iodide levels to those found in natural seawater.

It is formulated to provide a safe source of iodide that will not convert to toxic free iodine under storage or reef conditions. Iodine is as toxic as chlorine and should never be used in a reef system. However, iodide is as safe as chloride.

Iodide is an important element required by invertebrates and many soft corals (gorgonians, sarcophytons, etc)

Why should I buy Seachem Reef Iodide?

Most iodine supplements on the market are simply potassium iodide or a medicinal disinfectant commonly known as Lugol’s Solution. Lugol’s is a highly concentrated iodine/iodide solution that is highly toxic and intended for disinfection.

Unlike competing products, Reef Iodide is complexed to a stabilizing compound in order to keep it in the iodide form when added to the aquarium. All of the product remains usable and fully bio-available, as well as completely fish and invertebrate safe.

How do I use Seachem Reef Iodide?

Add 5ml (1 capful) for each 200L (US 50 gallons) every other day. Add 1ml for each 80L (20 US gallons) daily to raise iodide by 0.10 mg/L. If necessary, adjust amount so that iodide reads 0.06–0.08 mg/L 6–12 hours after the last amount. Thereafter, use this amount daily and check iodide twice a month.
