Tech I Iodine Supplement - 16 oz.
Item # 197896 / Manufacturer Part # 00396
Iodine is an important element to both fish and invertebrates. For fish, iodine prevents goiter, a physical deformation. Crabs, shrimp, and other similar organisms cannot molt without the proper amount of iodine. Iodine detoxifies the oxygen produced by the zooxanthellae algae within coral skeletons. All of these important factors should insure that iodine is a key part of your supplementation.
Tech I is a unique form of iodine that establishes an initial iodine concentration and then keeps it stable thanks to its time release formula. Tech I is a relatively safe form of iodine and is not easily overdosed when added correctly. Do not use UV sterilizers, Ozone, or oxidizing products like Poly-Ox while using Tech I. Use of these things will cause all the iodine to be released at once, which will cause an overdose. When used correctly, you will notice a definite boost in the growth of your hard and soft corals.
|Package Size||16 oz.|
Shake well before using. Add 10 ml (2 tsp) per 50 gallons of aquarium capacity every week for three weeks. Reduce to half dosage in the fourth and subsequent weeks. Add directly to the system in an area of good water movement. Do not mix with other supplements outside the aquarium.
KENT Marine Tech I immediately provides the aquarium with free iodide. The unique time release system continues to provide available iodide over several weeks. Test kits will not read the timed release iodide, and may not register the free iodide.
Ozone or other strong oxidizers can cause premature release of the iodide from this product. Carefully observe animals while using oxidizers. If negative reactions are noted, discontinue use, and resume a week later at half dose.
Use KENT Marine Kalkwasser, KENT Marine Liquid Calcium, KENT Marine Liquid Calcium Reactor, or KENT Marine Turbo-Calcium to build and maintain calcium levels in marine and reef systems.
