Can i increase the iodine levels in the tank to initiate a molt? I've got a 5" O. Scyllaris with advanced shell disease, to the point that green filamenous algae is growing out of it. I've added a dose of iodine to systems with Lysematid shrimps to rid it of the tiny black parasites in ut's gills, and cave shrimp to grow limbs back in short order. I also used this method on a small gonidactyllids, but i'm not sure how effective the iodine was, as the molt occored 2 days after the trreatment. I'm sure it will take several molts to get rid of scarsfrom the deep erosion.
