Both elements do have a positive impact to coloration in a nutrient poor system. Iodine to blue, iron to green for example. Not sure if your already know this document:

https://cms.korallen-zucht.de/files/...efing_engl.pdf

If you like to give the iodine a try just use one of the two products you have listed. Both have additional a positive impact to poly expansion especially for Acropora millepora corals.

Hello AG Reefer
Cyanobacteria problem If you can control it, I believe that there is no problem with the addition of iron iodide. After all, iodine and iron are also fuels of Cyanobacteria, pay attention to this.

Cyanobacteria problem, can be mixed together using ZeoCoral Snow + Zeo Bac
I believe there is no problem, everything will be fine.

Like picture coral, very beautiful

Both do work fine, to improve blue coloration so it is up to you. Dosage in both cases is the same 1 drop / 100 liters 2 – 3 x weekly works well for most nutrient poor systems.

Jacky is right, iodine does improve the growth of cyanos so if you have issues with them it might be better to fix this first.

Hello AG Reefer , my experience is not the same, both have a coloring effect, one is metabolism, reducing nutrition, and the sponge filtration system grows. One is to provide coral health in the poor nutrition water quality is added well, adjust the appearance of the coral. Both have the effect of reducing nutrients. However, Food7 is excessive, usually the coral tissue becomes dark, the phenomenon of mud algae, and the formation of green algae, attached to the foundation stone or sand.

Zeo Food7 Daily Dosage I think this is a considerable dose, Cyanobacteria problem Reduce Zeo Food7 supplement is good.

Zeo Food7 usually 2~3 times a week, 1 drop = 100 liters = 25 US gallons, for low malnutrition water quality is very good

I don't know what products you use, if Cyanobacteria problems make you feel troubled

If you use these products, it might be helpful to slightly reduce them by frequency.

Iodine, iron, Zeo AA, Zeo Food7, Xtra, Xtra Special, Booster

Try more water changes, use the toothbrush to remove the brush, skimmer adjust the wet, filter socks to change every other day, Zeo Coral Snow 2~4 times the amount added daily

I believe you should understand the above practices. I feel that the problem of Cyanobacteria is solved first, so that the water quality becomes better, so that there is more room for operation and operation.

I don't have a bad meaning.

especially if Zeo AA and Zeo Food7 are added, you should try to reduce the 1/2 dose, which is similar to Xtra and Zeo AA.

This is my understanding of Cyanobacteria, see for a reference.

It is a bacterium, which can be blue, green, brown, etc. of some varieties. The difference in color is not necessarily different. The factors that affect color are the amount of nutrients and the light.

Usually found in waters with high organic dissolved matter (DOM)

High-nutrient forms of organic pollutants are the best source of food for Cyanobacteria, and simple forms of amine acids, vitamins and other additives are also sources of food.

Cyanobacteria can also be used to determine indicators of organic pollution.

So Zeo Coral Snow, its function is to play its characteristics, and then bring it out by skimmer

Then you can check whether the water quality of the Ro/di equipment is good, or most of the spring in the area is caused by organic pesticides.

Reduce all nutrient supplements, change water, increase water flow cycle, skimmer adjust wet, filter sock replacement, ZeoVit application (whether it is recommended flow at the appropriate hour, ZeoVit it can also slow down organic forms of material), replace Zeo activated carbon.

Or the lamp is old or red spectrum, it is said to have a relationship

Corals are animals that need feeding compensation, but it works well in low-nutrient water quality, but Cyanobacteria absorbs and converts faster than corals, and is quickly used by Cyanobacteria.

Therefore, it is recommended to solve the Cyanobacteria problem, in order to obtain a wider range of feeding to the coral.

If it is me, I will reduce the nutritional supplement, or stop any nutritional supplements including Zeo CV, let things ease, or I can effectively control Cyano

Maybe everyone tastes different, just like the way people like to choose their own.

Well maybe my opinion above is not very correct and it is not necessarily

I really like coral pictures, corals are really beautiful.

For sure 1 liter / 100 liters net water volume. Knead the carbon regular to prevent channeling.
