Marine Pure 8x8x4″ High performance Biological filter for Fresh & Marine tank
MarinePure is designed to be a substrate for bio-filtration, specifically to target ammonia and nitrite removal (nitrification) and to minimize nitrates (denitrification). MarinePure is suitable for both freshwater and saltwater (marine) environments. MarinePure can be used fully submerged or in trickle/shower filters. It should not be used in moving bed filters. MarinePure has literally changed the way your tank can be run. The massive surface area, and huge potential for biological filtration has removed the need to design tanks around live rock. MarinePure has been so successful in handling the biological filtration that you can now run an entire tank without any live rock at all.
So how do you improve on the biological filtration properties of live rock? Simple, you use the Marine Pure rocks!
This fantastic new product outperforms liverock and comes with many more benefits.
One medium rock has the same filtering capacity of 24lbs of regular live rock!
The rock can be sanded,shaped,drilled,cut and glued so it is extremely versatile
Has vast surface area
Rocks are light so displace far less water
Phosphorous free and will not cause an established tank to cycle
No reefs are damaged in the production of the rock
Open flow porosity
Supports coralline growth
Reduces Ammonia, Nitrites and Nitrates
If that is not enough, it actually works out more economically when compared to regular live rock!
