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.

Usage Recommendations 

Nitrification

Recommended MarinePure amount for to eliminate ammonia and nitrite in an active filter, for a typical bio-load.
