where can I buy Lugol's iodine locally?

I need this ASAP. My torch coral's tissue is receding and wanna try to dip it.
No signs off brown jelly disease. Anyone?

Thanks

Most lfs should have it. Try vivid if age is too far.

Hit your LFS, most experienced owners will carry it especially if they deal in frags or butcher wild colonies themselves.

Wow if your seeing all those from your lfs, I'd think it would be time to find a better place to shop. Also dips can only do so much...some animals can make it though the dips.
