8"x8"x1" Plate

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™ Plates have a very large surface area to promote aerobic bacteria growth for ammonia and nitrite removal. Perfect for the creative hobbyist. Use as a baffle in wet/dry (bubble trap) in sumps, under substrate or rock formations, as a frag rack or substrate. It is easy to shape the plate to fit in tight or custom places.
