•Provides iodide, utilized by crustaceans (shrimp, lobsters, and crabs) to molt or shed their exoskeleton, enabling the crustacean to grow.
• Formulated specifically for ornamental freshwater and brackish water crustaceans maintained in planted and/or biotope aquaria.
• Helps prevent iodine-deficient issues in fish, such as goiter, by providing this critical element in a time-release form.
• Used in conjunction with the appropriate Florin supplements, helps establish and maintain proper water chemistry in planted and community freshwater aquaria.

Shake product for 3 – 5 seconds before each use. Dose as directed on the label.
Daily dosing is critical to eliciting the molting process. Crustaceans often hide for several days after molting to avoid confrontations with rivals or predators while their exoskeleton hardens to normal strength. Calcium is very important to chitin formation in crustaceans, and is provided by Florin Delta GH+. To benefit crustaceans, simply use that product as directed on the label to maintain proper calcium content in the aquarium for plant health. Water with very low TDS (<150 ppm or ~3 dGH) and/or low carbonate hardness (alkalinity) inhibits the formation and hardening of chitin.
Health and longevity of all captive aquatic organisms, including crustaceans, depends upon proper feeding and maintaining water temperature and chemistry within required ranges. Florin-I will not elicit molting unless the resident crustaceans have the necessary nutrients provided by feeding and are in good overall health.
Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Not for human consumption.
