I wonder if feeding things like Krill and supplementing little pieces of
Nori or Dulce (all of which are *heavy* hitters in the Iodine dept) would
take care of this issue in a biofixed, ingestion mechanism, rather than an
environmental absorption mechanism? I'm sure the I2 salt would help... Just
wondered if you could give them a break earlier in the game? What all are
you feeding them Geoff?
