Lugol`s Solution is VERY strong, and must not be overdosed! Add 1 drop per 25 gallons 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. To use as a dip for corals, in a separate bucket add 40 drops Lugol`s Solution to 1 gallon aquarium water, and immerse coral for 10-15 minutes.
Considerations for use:
Kent Lugol`s Solution is a very strong source of iodine, and must be dosed carefully, according to the directions. Lugol`s Solution is very useful for xenia, soft and stony corals, and other polyp cnidarians. This product is best applied to an aquarium by adding it to a strong current of water where it can be circulated into the aquarium over a prolonged period of time. Lugol`s Solution can also be diluted at a ratio of 1 drop to 4 oz. aquarium water in a separate cup and targeted directly up-current from xenia colonies or soft corals, but take care when using this method (not all corals will react the same; stony corals do not generally appreciate this target method of applying Lugol`s).
The benefits of using Lugol`s Solution with Concentrated Iodine Supplement™ and Tech I are that invertebrates are provided with continuous sources of iodine and iodide. When using Lugol`s Solution in conjunction with Concentrated Iodine Supplement, administer Concentrated Iodine at ½ the recommended dosage, and do not dose both products on the same day. When using Lugol`s Solution in conjunction with Tech I, administer either product at ½ the recommended dosage and allow 3-4 days between dosing Lugol`s and Tech I.
If you suspect that you have overdosed the aquarium with Lugol’s Solution, add 1 drop of Kent Chlorinex or Ammonia Detox per 2 drops of Lugol’s that was overdosed, to the aquarium. Do not dose Lugol’s Solution within 24 hours of treating an aquarium with either Chlorinex or Ammonia Detox.
