  • When properly colonized, and used as directed, XPORT will reduce toxic ammonia and nitrites to near zero in all aquariums and ponds.
  • Significantly reduces phosphate and dissolved organics.
  • Works excellently as the only filtration medium for the aquarium or pond or may be employed in addition to other filtration media.

Instructions & Guidelines

Use about 2 to 4 XPORT BIO 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. For superior results, seed the material using MICROBACTER START XLF, FLORINBACTER7, MICROBACTER7 or FLORINBACTERCLEAN, as appropriate for your aquarium, by placing XPORT BIO CUBES 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 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.

Keep out of reach of children. Not for human use or consumption. Do not fluidize or allow to rub against other filtration material which could cause grinding down. 

Contains inert, man made high porosity ceramic stone. Weight varies, sold by volume not by weight.
