Kent Lugol's Solution 1 oz
Iodide Supplement for Reef Aquariums
Kent lugol's solution provides a strong source of free iodine and iodide to reef inhabitants and macroalgae. Although it's very effective when used with stony corals, systems containing xenia and soft corals are particularly benefited by the use of Lugol's solution. Used as a dip for stony and soft or leather corals, Lugol's will help rid the animals of unwanted parasites and harmful bacteria. This product helps foster improved coloration and prevents bleaching of all corals due to changes in light intensity, and enhances coral polyp expansion. Kent Lugol's solution provides a key nutrient for marine invertebrates and fishes, and contains no phosphate, nitrate, gluconate, or other sugars.
Add 1 drop per 25 gallons of aquarium capacity weekly to sump or an area of high water flow. Can also be diluted in one cup of aquarium water and administered directly over xenia colonies or soft corals with rigid tubing or a pipette. Do not mix with other supplements outside the aquarium.
In a separate bucket add 40 drops Lugol’s Solution to 1 gallon aquarium water, and immerse coral for 10-15 minutes.
If you suspect that you have overdosed the aquarium with Lugol’s Solution, add 1 drop of KENT Marine Ammonia Detox to the aquarium per 2 drops of Lugol’s that was overdosed. Do not dose Lugol’s Solution again for 24 hours.
