While many people are intent on providing their fish with the necessary nutrients and living conditions that they need to survive, it is quite unfortunate to know that only few are aware of the benefits, which corals can give. In fact, it seems that these species are now just being used as ornaments. Knowing this, you should then be responsible for the well-being of your coral life, simply by giving them a daily dose of the Salifert Iodine from Pet Store
. This is available in a 1000-ml bottle, which can last for many weeks.
As corals thrive in saltwater, this product aims to create a living condition for these species that are very like the environment that they are used to. This formula is rich in Iodine, which is an essential nutrient that is needed for this livestock to survive and propagate. Whats great about this item is that it is the only thing that you have to apply to your aquarium to cater to the demands of your reef life.
The Salifert Iodine will not only provide your corals with the nutrients that they need, but it will also enhance their features and colors, giving you a more beautiful aquarium
. Best of all, there will be no need for you to clean your reef life by hand again when you have this formula at your disposal.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

All ingredients are of a pharmaceutical quality or even better. This ensures that no unwanted elements are added to your valuable aquarium.Other requirements
