I don't use an iodine mix or any salt mix with my
Tanganyikans. All I know is that of all the 'bows I've
raised in the tank so far none have developed any goiter
etc... No doubt there are iodine traces in the shell
gritt etc...

But we will see...

Any ideas on the concentration iodine needed for 'bows?
