Xport-NO3 Ultra-activated Denitrification Media with Superior Performance Characteristics.
Nominal 9" x 8.00" x 1.50" for Aquascaping, Biofiltration, and Coral Propagation
Because our material is not fired or heated, but chemically hardened:
Use one XPort NO3 PLATE for every 1,250 U.S. gallons (4,750 L) of system capacity, more for heavy bio loads. Rinse material well with aquarium water or purified tap water. For superior results, seed the material well with the aquarium water or purified tap water. For superior results, seed the material using FLORINBACTER, MICROBACTER7 or MICROBACTER CLEAN as appropriate for your aquarium, by placing XPORT NO3 Plate in a plastic container, filling it with aquarium water, and then adding the full recommended dose of either bacterial product,based on the size of your aquarium, to that container. Allow to stand overnight and then add the seeded XPORT NO3 Plate to your system. You may also add the water back to your aquarium if desired. It is recommended that you use sponge, fine filter floss or other material. For maximum results, also provide a good carbon source of growing bacteria, such as Brightwell KATALYST bio pellets or liquid REEF BIO FUEL or FLORIN AXIS as appropriate for your aquarium, as directed on their label.

No, I would not recommend this.
Didn't Expect This...
Pros: porous, light weight.
Cons: Reliability and safety in an established aquarium is in question.
I placed this product in the rear sump of my biocube 32 gallon and approximately one week later I noticed all of my corals shriveling up. I ended up losing my hammer coral and a blasto. This was the only thing that I had changed so I removed it after trying a 20% water change without any improvement. A week after removing the Brightwell product my corals started to improve. Coincidence???

Yes, I would recommend this.
I have a 150 gallon fish only live rock with a high bio load. I used one brick in the sump. I did see a reduction in nitrate after about 10 weeks. It appears I need to replace the plate after 4 months. Product states it will last 4 - 8 months. I also do 40 gallons water change per week so I need to look at other options.
