CerMedia MarinePure 1.5-Inch Sphere Bio-Filter Media for Marine and Freshwater Aquariums, 2 Quarts

MarinePure

MarinePure is the perfect place for beneficial bacteria to flourish in order to remove harmful fish wastes. It will eliminate ammonia and lower nitrates.

MarinePure's bio-media is the most technically advanced bio-media available today.

Features Thin Bio-Film Technology
MarinePure is inert and will not harm aquarium inhabitants.

 

Why Use MarinePure

  • Better value due to high performance
  • Reduced tank maintenance
  • Allows for higher fish loads
  • Can use a smaller filtration footprint
  • More consistent water chemistry
  • Easy to shape

 

Can be used in a variety of applications;

  • Used in tank
  • Used in sumps
  • Used in canister filters
  • Used in DIY filters
  • Used in trickle or shower filters
  • Used in waterfall filters
  • Used in hang on back filters

 

Thin Bio-Film Technology
Combination of vast surface area and open/interconnected pores allow a thin bio-film to develop.

This thin film allows bacteria to flourish because necessary nutrients are immediately available.

With the open pores, old dead bio-film is easily flushed from the media and will not plug the media.

Water flows through the media, not around as with other denser medias, thus utilizing the most surface area for beneficial bacterial growth.

 

SIZES

1½" Spheres

Designed for Ammonia and Nitrite Removal

One MarinePure Sphere has the same surface area as 1,350 plastic 1.5" bio-balls.

Use in canister filters, sumps, and wet/dry filters.

 

8x8x4" Block

Ammonia, Nitrite and Nitrate Removal

Primarily designed to provide deep anaerobic zones for de-nitrification in passive systems.

Live rock substitute-popular among reef hobbyists as a substitute for live rock because it reduces nitrates more efficiently without harming the environment.

Use in sumps, stacked in extra-large filters.

 

MarinePure Technical Info

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.

  • Light Weight Bulk Density = 0.3 - 0.5 g/cc
  • High Surface Area 1.3 - 1.7 m2/g
  • Open Pore Structure 80 - 90% Open Porosity
  • Chemically Inert
  • Hydrophilic Adsorbs water and stays wet longer
  • Low Pressure Drop
  • Unaffected by ozone

MarinePure Instructions

MarinePure is designed to be a substrate for bio-filtration, specifically to target ammonia and nitrite removal and to minimize nitrates.

MarinePure is suitable for both freshwater and saltwater environments. MarinePure can be used fully submerged or in trickle/shower filters.

 

For removal of Ammonia and Nitrites (Nitrification)

  • Initial rinse of media with water to remove surface particulate created during shipping.
    If tap water is used, perform second rinse with tank water to remove chlorine.
  • Locate media in filter, sump, under gravel bed, anywhere in the tank or as part of a reef structure. Locating within the flow of the water will give the most efficient results.
  • NOTE: the product is easily shaped using a hand saw or coarse sand paper. Make sure to rinse particulate before placing in tank.
    Wear a a dust mask to avoid breathing in particulate
  • Mechanical filtration of water, such as with matting, is recommended prior to water entering MarinePure product

 

Maintenance for flow-through filter systems

  • Periodic backwashing or rinsing using tank water suggested every 3 months or as frequently as necessary.

 

For removal of Nitrates (Denitrification)

  • Initial rinse of media with water to remove surface particulate created during shipping.
    If tap water is used, perform second rinse with tank water to remove chlorine.
  • Locate media in a passive location such as in a sump, under gravel bed, or as part of a reef structure.
  • NOTE: If desired, the product can be easily shaped using a hand saw or coarse sand paper. Make sure to rinse off particulate before placing in tank.
  • Wear a a dust mask to avoid breathing in particulate

 

Maintenance for passive filter systems

If necessary, backwash and / or rinse as described above.

  • Although product should be self-cleaning, applications and use vary.
  • A weak acid can be used for cleaning, but time in acid conditions should be minimized. Make sure to wear appropriate Personal Protective Equipment when using acid.
