Nitra-Guard BIO-Cubes Titanium is the world’s first and only carbohydrate based nitrate remover that is totally resistant to the limiting effects of Redfield’s Ratio. Standard carbohydrate based nitrate removers must have some phosphates in order to work. This poses a real problem for customers who require the use of Phosphate removers to lower the PO4 levels inside the system. Once the PO4 levels have dropped to 0ppm, the carbon based media stops working. This has been a problem for aquarists who wish to run PO4 removal media and lower nitrates at the same time. Unlike all other competing carbohydrate based nitrate remover brands, Nitra-Guard Titanium is the only media in the world that is able to remove nitrates when there is no PO4 present in the system. BIO-Cubes Titanium is made from 100% biologically degradable polymers that effectively remove both nitrates and phosphates from both marine and freshwater systems.
BIO-Cubes Titanium has a very high surface area and contains 400% more carbohydrates than any other brand, making it not only the best product of its kind in the world, but, the only one of its kind. Independent testing in real world scenarios has proven BIO-Cubes Titanium to have the same nitrate removing capabilities as Nitra-Guard BIO-Cubes Original formula. No other product of its kind can compare with the explosive performance that BIO-Cubes Titanium can offer. BIO-Cubes Titanium is very versatile and can be used in filter bags, fluidized reactors and denitrators. BIO-Cubes Titanium require no maintenance and require no feeding dosages making it the easiest and most convenient nitrate and phosphate removing product on the market. Nitra-Guard BIO-Cubes Titanium comes with a free filter bag with every jar.
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.
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 have 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 in real world scenarios revealed that BIO-Cubes had the ability to reduce nitrates from 60ppm down to 5ppm in less than 2 weeks while competing products claim to only start working after 2 weeks!
Directions for use
The amount required will depend on stocking densities and amount of food added to the aquarium. For heavily stocked tanks, use 3ml to every 1lts of aquarium water and for aquariums with lighter stock loads, add 1ml to every 1lts of aquarium water. For best results, use Nitra-Guard BIO-Cubes in a denitrator reactor and commission the denitrator as specified by the manufacturer. If the BIO-Cubes are to be used in a filter bag or reactor, place them near the protein skimmer to assist in removing the nitrate and phosphate rich biomass faster. After 1 to 2 weeks, 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 for 24hrs before use.

3.1 Protocols for e-Commerce retailers
All retailers using e-Commerce platforms to sell goods must ensure the following:
3.1.1 All Regulations and Directions in respect of hygienic workplace conditions and the potential exposure of employees to COVID-19 must be adhered to, including the Covid-19 Occupational Health and Safety Measures in Workplaces directions issued by the Minister of Employment of Labour and published in Government Notice 479 on 29 April 2019, which for ease of reference has been set out in Annexure A.
3.1.2 In addition, employees may not share face masks, equipment, stationery, utensils or similar items, and Designated and adequately trained health and safety officers must take each employee’s temperatures using appropriate equipment or instruments at the start of a shift and every four hours after the shift commences. Records of the temperatures of each employee must be kept. Any employee whose temperature is 37,5 degrees or above should immediately be moved to an isolated observation room for a second measurement. If the second test measurement also exceeds 37,5 degrees, the employee must be returned home for self-quarantine, provided with a surgical mask and not be permitted to enter or stay on the premises.
3.1.3 In order to limit the social and economic hardship caused by the pandemic on local industries and enable consumer choice to support local producers, retailers must give prominence to those goods which are manufactured in the Republic of South Africa.
3.1.4 Retailers must provide for as many payment options as possible for consumers, that are based on reducing risks of transmission, and enabling poorer consumers to access delivery services.
3.1.5 When packaging goods, retailers must provide written guidelines for customers on how to safely disinfect their goods before use.
