Neither, iodine does nothing for zoa nudis. Look into Bayer or Salifert's FWE.

Iodine works very well for bacterial issues, but you're right does nothing to kill the nudi's and nothing will kill the eggs accept scrapping them off

You can buy iodine from any pharmacy.

Anybody use Furan 2 for that? I read reviews somewhere that it works on Zoas.

Furan 2 is for bacterial infections, doesn't work on nudis.

Try revive or coral Rx and use a turkey baster and monitor after dipping
