    I was wondering if dosing small amounts of iodide for invertebrates, primarily neocaridina and caridina shrimp is beneficial. Thoughts?

    Shrimp get their nutrition via the food, like us.

    I haven't had issues. Just read it was beneficial and I wasn't sure. So when that happens I ask here. No bias or hidden agenda to be found here.

    No one here is trying to sell me something.

    Tom, a better line for you would be, "What!? Your shrimp will die without my high grade specially treated manzanita wood and branches! With this wood, they won't even die when you try to kill them!"
