Continuum Aquatics Reef-Basis Liquid Iodide Complex Information




Reef•Basis Iodide
Description: Iodine Supplement for Marine Aquariums

Features:
• Safe form of Stabilized Iodine for Reef & Fish Only Aquariums
• Phosphate, Nitrate & Silicate Free
• Allows corals to shield themselves from strong lighting and helps prevent coral bleaching

Advantages:
Reef•Basis - IodideTM is a stabilized, safe iodide supplement, designed to nourish organisms that require iodine. It is particularly useful for soft corals of all kinds, particularly xenia, as well as gorgonians, hard corals, tunicates, marine worms such as feather dusters, sponges, macroalgae, and crustaceans, particularly shrimp. Growth rates in xenia and gorgonians will likely improve with it’s use. It helps all corals and clams retain their coloration and shield against strong lighting. Reef•Basis - Iodide TM contains no gluconate or polygluconate.

Use in Aquarium Keeping:
Iodine, while present in better salt mixes, is rapidly removed through ozone, skimming, carbon and other filtration and used up by inhabitants. It is necessary, therefore, to supplement it for maximum invertebrate and algae health, particularly if you have strong lighting. If you are propagating corals, be sure to use Coral Exponential TM to provide naturally ratioed amino acids for accelerated tissue growth along with Reef•Basis Calcium TM, Magnesium, and Strontium to provide proper minerals for aragonite growth. Also, use Coral Elements•N TM to add vitamins and trace minerals specifically designed for corals. Continuum recommends that you maintain about .04 to .06 mg/l (ppm) iodide level in your aquarium, if measuring.

Directions:
Shake well prior to use. Add 1 capful (5 ml) per 50 US-gallons (200 L) of marine aquarium water 2 to 3 times per week. Do not overdose!

Expert Use:
Dosing through use of a drip system is a superior method of addition. You may mix it with buffers or alkaline supplements, but not with calcium, strontium and similar products. See our website for compatibility of supplements. Determine the amount of iodide consumption during the time it takes to add the entire volume of your drip system. Determine the amount of Reef•Basis Iodide TM to add in milliliters by multiplying your tank capacity in gallons by the amount you want to raise it in mg/l (ppm) and by 2.5. (Example: if you have a 50 gallon tank and you want to raise the level by .01 ppm with the entire dose, you would multiply 50 x .01 x 2.5 which equals 1.25 ml of Reef•Basis Iodide TM or about 1/4 capfuls). Continuum recommends that you maintain about .04 to .06 mg/l (ppm) iodide level in your aquarium.

Warning:
Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption. Contains potassium iodide, if ingested, contact a poison control center immediately! If in eyes flush with water for 15 minutes, contact a poison control center.
