Thrive 4 Iodide is designed to increase iodide levels in your salt water reef aquarium. Most reef aquariums will need supplementation of iodide for all inhabitants to thrive. Invertebrates, such as crabs and shrimps need iodide to help with the moulting process. Iodide is constantly depleted by skimmers and activated carbon. The chemical management of salt water, reef aquariums is a delicate balance. The Thrive products and Thrive Analytics were created to help you simply assess and adjust the balance of your salt water aquarium system.

If not using Thrive Analytics in store or at home: 1. Add 1 ml per 20 gallons daily until the desired iodide is obtained. 2. Dose daily as needed to maintain iodide at .04 ppm to .06 ppm. Dosing without testing is not recommended. Advanced directions: Each ml of Iodide will increase the total iodine in 1 gallon of water by 4.75 ppm. Add Iodide at the maximum rate of 1 ml per 50 gallons daily until your target total iodine is reached. Dose weekly or as needed. DO NOT OVERDOSE: Total iodine levels greater than .09 ppm may harm aquarium inhabitants.
