    5 to 6 drops is kind of pointless.. Depending on how much iodine is already in your tank (via salt/ addidives), the average dose tends to be 1ml per 25 gallons per day to reach .06.

    Its definitley a safe does, due to the fact that the amount of iodine your adding is near pointless. Its better to buck up and get the $30 test kit to go along with the $20 bottle of (good) iodoine- cant use 1 without the other.

    Having the RIGHT amount of iodine is benificial to the sustained system, however, one simply can not blindly add a 'benifit' to the tank if too much of it (and by tiny amounts) can wipe out nearly everything...

    Yes same thing is happening to my'n. I bought a stalk yesterday at my LFS and it's wilted quite a bit. I have my powerhead right above it but it's pointing up and at the top of the tank and across.

    First picture is last night, and 2nd is today.
