- MarinePure Ceramic Biomedia Plate
Great Product and Performance By Dylan on 7/31/2014Dylan would recommend this product to a friendI bought the 8x8x4 after seeing a video online of scientists using the spheres in a lab. I put it in my sump while my tank was cycling and my ammonia went down very quickly and I have not measured nitrate in my tank since. This material is very porous, and I would recommend it to anyone that doesn't want to use a lot of rock in their display tank.
Bio pellet, plate review By Daniel on 7/18/2013Daniel would recommend this product to a friendThe bio-plate is so soft! I was able to easily shape the plate and have put it in the top tray of my canister filter. Day one of this little experiment, no noticeable reduction in flow so far. Very cool product..
Five stars on first impression and ease of use...
Great product By Robert on 3/15/2012Robert would recommend this product to a friendThis product is extremely light in weight and porous. When rinsed no water collects on the top of the pad or runs off the side.
Performance By Robert on 10/31/2011Robert would recommend this product to a friendAlong with using the Marine Pure Spheres, I put two of these on the bottom of the sump to support the egg create. Keeping these two submerged has dropped my nitrates to a safer range. All together, the system has 168,400 square feet of Ceramic Biomedia.

I am looking to slowly trade out some of my rock in the display for marinepure in the sump to open things up a bit. Is there any ball park estimate on how many pounds of Fiji rock one of the 8x8x1 plates will replace?
Bulk Reef Supply Hey Wes,
Generally speaking the 8x8x1 plate is enough surface area to handle a 100g tank on its own, so you should have the ability to remove quite a bit of rock. Just make sure to do it slowly so that the tank has time to adjust and the bacteria that are getting removed have time grow in their new substrate.
The media’s composition is similar to natural rock formations. MarinePure provides approximately 150,000 sq. Ft per cu. Ft (510 m2/L) of accessible surface area. The properties of MarinePure create a stable home for a dense population of beneficial bacteria that remove ammonia and nitrites from your aquarium. Some systems will also see a decrease in nitrates. MarinePure will work in sumps, trickle filters, wet/dry filters, hang on the back filters or directly in the tank.
