  • Who Knows By on 3/25/2017

    I think it's working? I have a small plate in my sump to help with surface area. I am not sure if it is helping reduce nitrates but maybe helping to hold them steady? I don't routinely stare at the sump so I haven't noticed any bubbling from it. The loss of a star is due to A LOT of fines coming from it, even after rinsing it for a solid 20 minutes.
  • Worthwhile, but fragile By on 2/26/2017

    Used this to replace foam in my Reefer 250 bubble trap. This stuff is very delicate -- I ordered two. one arrived broken in half... and they're delicate to the touch. Don't put them somewhere that will subject them to mechanical agitation.

    If you're not using MarinePure to supplement your biofiltration, why are you still waiting? This little 8x8x1 block will substantiate 30gallons by itself, that means you don't need as much in the display, giving you the best opportunity to play with your aquascape and get creative! I have a 46g Bowfront and 1 block of this and had a blast getting my scape perfect for our home!
  • Easy to work with By on 2/4/2017

    I have a Red Sea 250. I cut this in half and then soaked it in RO/DI Water. It's crazy how much water it holds. I removed the black sponge that comes with the Red Sea sump and about cut it to make a 2.5" x 14" strip. I cut the marine pure to the to be 4"x by about 14" to be the same same length as the bubble trap. . Now I have the Marine pure just under the sponge in the bubble trap area. :IT its great and while it is fragile it's very easy to cut to the shape you want. I recommend the 8x8x1 for the Red Sea 250.

    So far so good. I will be checking the water next week. Fit in my sump easy.
  • It works.. By on 12/1/2016

    I have had the 1" plate in my sump, located in the baffles where it can get the most water flow and my nitrates are practically zero.. I thought it was the test kit, so I used another test kit and still almost no color in the test vial...I wont say it zero, because the first two color options look the same to me (being color blind!).. As for the plate, it was delivered with a corner broke, but since it was to go in the baffles anyways it really didn't bother me. The only downside, for me that's is aptasia loves to grow on it..
  • Way too fragile. By on 10/1/2016

    I purchased a block to live in my sump. I have a 180 mixed reef and a 75 gallon custom sump. I can see how the product has a large surface area and would support lots of bacteria but the block I purchased was loosing material and the bag was full of fines. The product has little structural integrity kind of like a sand castle. I was expecting something solid. For the price one would be better off buying a bunch of dry live rock. This stuff is way overpriced. I wonder if it will erode down to nothing.
  • don't see why it wouldn't work By on 9/22/2016

    this has been in my tank for about 2 weeks, I bought the 8x8x1 block and have a 60G tank. its really light when you first get it but once you rinse it you can see how much water it hold. so far so good.
