    Adding too much iodine supplement encourages pre-mature molting. Can be bad for crusties. I think that is why amcarrig is asking?

    Hmm, Careful though.
    PurpleUP contains Iodine..
    IODINE REPLENISHMENT: Purple Up™ also replenishes iodine, an essential element for coralline algae tissues that becomes quickly depleted in closed systems.
