Essentially MarinePure is designed to specifically target ammonia and nitrite removal and to minimise nitrates by providing an enormous surface area for beneficial bacteria in your aquarium or pond to colonise. The product is far more efficient than anything else available as can be seen in the chart below.
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.
