The trials were so successful we could not wait to get our hands on this "NEW" addition to the NITRA-GUARD RANGE range for our own use, and of course sale to the public. When we say "new" we mean "new" not old stuff improved like the good old washing powder adverts but genuinely "new". For many years now we have seen products enter the aquatics market promising to lower nitrate levels and whilst many do lower them that is all they do, but with you monitoring or feeding the product regularly. Now like many other people we would like to eradicate nitrates and then keep them gone. Well at last this product will do exactly what it says on the tin (label) if used correctly. Nitra-Guard Bio-Cubes have proven to be exactly what they claim and NOW TITANIUM IS HERE (for systems with extremely low Phosphates) BIO-CUBES TITANIUM WORK EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE STANDARD BIO CUBES BUT ARE TO BE USED IN SYSTEMS LACKING IN PO4 (Phosphates) BIO-Cubes TITANIUM are made from 100% biologically degradable polymers that effectively remove both nitrates and phosphates from both marine and freshwater systems. BIO-Cubes TITANIUM have a very high surface area and contains 400% more carbohydrates than any other brand, making it the best product of it’s kind in the world. Independent testing in real world scenarios, have proven BIO-Cubes (just like their big brother the standard Bio-Cubes) far outperform all other competing products. No other product of it’s kind can compare with the explosive performance that any of the BIO-Cubes can offer. BIO-Cubes TITANIUM are very versatile and can be used in filter bags, fluidized reactors and denitrators and even canister filters just the same as the STANDARD BIO-CUBES. As with all BIO-Cubes they require virtually no maintenance and require no feeding dosages making it the easiest and most convenient nitrate removing product on the market. Nitra-Guard BIO-Cubes TITANIUM come with a free filter bag with every jar Nitra-Guard Bio-Cubes TITANIUM remove nitrates and maintain extremely low to non-measurable levels of nitrates whether it be in salt or freshwater where there are extremely low levels of PO4 (Phosphates). So please remember if you are removing nitrates from a system that has levels of PO4 use the STANDARD BIO-CUBES as they remove PO4 as well. This will reduce the amount of water changes you have to do and will along with other treatments eradicate unsightly algae blooms. Excessive Nitrate levels in water cause not only unsightly algae blooms and pH drops, it can also damage the health of your fish. When nitrates are absorbed into the blood stream, they absorb oxygen directly out of the blood. This condition is known as methemoglobinemia and inhibits the blood from transporting oxygen to the cells. To make this product even more attractive to hobbyists Nitra-Guard Bio-Cubes TITANIUM are maintenance free and start working faster than any other nitrate removing polymer based product which makes it great value for money as you are not eroding the product before the removing begins. Also with less water changes you are lowering the amount of salt you are using another cost reduction for you. (Please remember when reducing water changes you should monitor levels of trace elements which are normally replenished via the salt and dose appropriately). BENEFITS The world’s fastest & most effective carbohydrate based nitrate remover!! The only brand totally resistant to "Redfield's Ratio" More economical & effective than any other product of it’s kind in the world… nothing can compare!! Can reduce 50 ppm Nitrate to 0 ppm within 10 to 14 days in Freshwater and Seawater!! Easy & convenient use, no daily feedings or dosings, just add as directed and enjoy months Nitrate free water topping up as required!! No more Deep Sand Bed Filters required which saves space, time and money!! 100% natural, biological Nitrate removal, no chemicals or metals like iron or aluminium!! No effect on pH or alkalinity!! Massively reduces water changes saving on salt and more importantly TIME!!!! In freshwater tanks the product is just as efficient. many discus keepers have reported excellent plant growth as the nitrate rich biomass feeds the plants. They have reported the water clarity is massively improved. It can be used in external filters or hang on reactors or in the media bag provided and just placed in an area of high flow. The small nano tanks available on the market today are ideal for placing the cubes in the rear filter box and just having water flow through for increasing its efficiency if the tank is heavily stocked put an airline into the media bag. Fine filter media will remove the bio-mass or even a weekly gravel clean. HOW IT ALL WORKS Bacteria consume the high carbohydrate source found in the BIO-Cubes and form a biomass that absorbs nitrates and phosphates from the water in the aquarium. This biomass is then skimmed out with a protein skimmer or is consumed as a food source by corals and clams if you do not have a skimmer. When culturing bacteria, 2 of the most important factors that will determine the size of the colony are surface area and food source. BIO-Cubes look like small open celled sponges giving the product a massive surface area. BIO-Cubes also has 400% more biologically available, insoluble polymer carbohydrates than any other product in the world. These 2 factors create conditions that are perfect for culturing and sustaining large bacteria colonies required to effectively remove phosphate and nitrate from aquariums. It is these 2 factors that have made Nitra-Guard BIO-Cubes the world’s best carbohydrate based nitrate removing media. Independent tests that were performed not in a laboratory under perfect lab conditions but in real world scenarios revealed that BIO-Cubes had the ability to reduce nitrates from 50 ppm down to below 5 ppm in under 10 to 14 days while competing products claim to only start working after 3 weeks. Also competing products eroded up to 3 times quicker than Bio-Cubes. DIRECTIONS FOR USE Please take note of the amount recommended at the start The amount required will depend on stocking densities and the amount of food added to the aquarium. For heavily stocked tanks, reading over 60 ppm use 4 ml to every 1 litre of aquarium water For aquariums with lower stock loads and nitrates reading of 30-60 ppm use 3ml per litre For lower stocking levels and nitrate readings of between 15 ppm -30 ppm use 2ml per litre For low stocking levels or a new system with nitrate readings of up to 15 ppm add 1 ml to every 1 litre of aquarium water. For best results, use Nitra-Guard BIO-Cubes in a reactor with a venturi feed, or if the BIO-Cubes are to be used in a filter bag they need placing in an area of high flow and have added air to the cubes via an airline is ideal. If possible place any outlet near a protein skimmer to assist in removing the nitrate and phosphate rich biomass faster If no skimmer is available or it is being used in freshwater just a fine filter material will remove the bio mass easily. After 10 to 14 days, the bacteria colonies will become prolific enough to start lowering nitrate levels in your aquarium. If nitrate and phosphate levels in your aquarium are high, some cloudiness may occur which clears in a few days. Soak BIO-Cubes in freshwater (Filtered or RO) for 24hrs before use. The amount of cubes you use initially are not the amount of cubes you need once levels are reduced. Normal running levels are normally between 1 and 2 ml per litre of tank water.
