The Continuum REEF-BASIS SUSTAIN.
Reef•Basis Sustain Iodine is a unique multicomponent iodine release system designed to nourish organisms that require iodine. It is particularly useful for soft corals of all kinds particularly xenia as well as Gorgonians hard corals Tunicates marine worms such as Feather Dusters Sponges Macroalgae and crustaceans particularly shrimp. Growth rates in Xenia and Gorgonians will likely improve with it's use. It helps all corals and clams retain their coloration and shield against strong lighting. Reef•Basis SustaIn contains no gluconate or polygluconate.
Use in aquarium keeping.
Iodine while present in better salt mixes is rapidly removed through ozone skimming carbon and other filtration and used up by inhabitants. It is necessary therefore to supplement it for maximum invertebrate and algae health particularly if you have strong lighting. If you are propagating corals be sure to use Coral Exponential TM to provide naturally ratioed amino acids for accelerated tissue growth along with Reef•Basis Calcium Magnesium and Strontium to provide proper minerals for aragonite growth. Also use Coral Elements•N to add vitamins and trace minerals specifically designed for corals. Continuum recommends that you maintain about .04 to .06 mg/l (ppm) iodide level in your aquarium if measuring.
Directions and protocol.
Shake well prior to use. Add 1 capful (5 ml) per 50 US-gallons (200 L) of marine aquarium water 2 to 3 times per week for the first three weeks then reduce the dosage to 1 capful per 100 gallons (half dosage) subsequently. Do not overdose!
Dosing through use of a totally separate drip system is a superior method of addition. Do not mix with any other products prior to addition. Since test kits will likely not read the organic iodine in Sustain Iodine it is recommended that you simply add the above amount to the doser. In other words add 1 capful to the amount of solution that the doser will add in 2 to 4 days per 50 US-gallons (200 L) of marine aquarium water. If you decide to test the iodine levels it is recommended that you maintain from .04 to .06 ppm.
