Details: Iodine is present in NSW (Natural seawater) in a very low concentration
(0.06 mg/L or 0.06 ppm).

Iodine occurs as different species. Some of them are iodide, iodate and

Generally when we say iodine then we mean one or more iodine
species without a clear distinction being made. NSW contains
predominantly iodate and to a slight extent iodide.

There is however a misconception among many hobbyists that iodide
predominates in NSW. This is however false.

Test kits which are not capable in detecting iodate might not really be
suitable for aquarium use. Since in an aquarium iodide can be
transferred to iodate. This means that if a test kit is used not
capable in detecting iodate, a false low total iodine concentration
(sum of iodate and iodide) will be obtained and the iodate
concentration can climb far too high and possibly upsetting the
aquarium environment.

The Salifert Iodine Profi Test measures all naturally occurring iodine
species such as iodate, iodide, molecular iodine and hypoiodite.
No other test kit offers this possibility.

Salifert’s Natural-Iodine additive is highly concentrated and contains a
large portion iodate and also some iodide.

Salifert stands alone in offering such an advanced and well thought

Approx. a total of 40 tests per kit. Measures iodide and iodate (together
with hypoiodite and molecular iodine) in separate steps.
