Designed to be used in marine and hard freshwater aquariums with a pH of 7.5 or over
Utilizes NanoIntelex Technology to create an enhanced, “ultra-activated” material with the capacity to outperform conventional denitrification media by over 300%
Open structure and high surface area results in superior flow-through characteristics and filtration efficiency. Provides over 71,000 square feet of useable surface area per liter of cubes. This is higher than another know filtration medium in the world by a factor of at least 10 times.
Higher efficiency relative to conventional media results in smaller space requirements to achieve equivalent denitrification.
Eliminates the need to perform water changes that are carried out for the express purpose of decreasing nitrate in an aquarium system.
May be used in conjunction with Xport Bio Cubes and Xport PO4 Cubes
Use about 2 to 4 Xport NO3 Cubes for every 10 U.S. gallons ( 38 L ) of system capacity, more for heavy bio loads. Rinse material well with aquarium water or purified tap water to remove any dust. For superior results, seed the material using onlythe specific bacteria product that you are using in the aquarium. If using MicrōBacter Start XLM, use one capful to seed (add balance of bacteria directly to the aquarium). If using FlorinBacter7, MicrōBacter7 or MicrōBacterCLEAN add full recommended dose. Place XPort NO3 Cubes in a plastic container, filling it with aquarium water, and then add the bacterial product, based on the size of your aquarium, to that container. Allow to stand overnight and then add the seeded XPort Bio Cubes to your system. Discard the soak water. It is recommended that you use sponge, fine filter floss or other mechanical filtration ahead of XPort Bio Cubes to prevent clogging with organic material. For maximum results, also provide a good carbon source for growing bacteria, such as Brightwell® Katalyst bio pellets or liquid Reef BioFuel or FlorinAxis as appropriate for your aquarium, as directed on their label. For maximum nitrification, place in an area of good flow with good oxygenation. For maximum denitration, create an anoxic zone (a zone of very low oxygen) for the cubesby severely limiting water flow through the chamber that you place them in. If you don’t have a suitable anoxic zone, then place the cubes in a plastic jar with a plastic lid. Drill two small holes in the lid on the top to allow the nitrogen gas bubbles that will form to escape and two small holes near the bottom of the jar on the vertical surface of the side. All holes should be 3/16″ or 5 mm in diameter. Place the jar in an area of mild to low flow. This will significantly increase the amount of NO3 that the Xport can remove.
