Postby peeyooshk » Tue Mar 01, 2016 3:37 am

Hello Everyone:

There has been a lot of debate about the product from Marine Pure (Cubes and Blocks). As every human being we have opinions and logic's behind the reasoning provided. These have come from the experiences and ability to understand the parameters in this hobby. To ensure that the product review is based upon usage of the product and not on the looks of it, we are starting this thread.

We would be giving cubes and a block for free to 3 people on this forum to check and provide there feedback. When we say “Free” we mean, no product cost, no shipping cost. The only requirement is to ensure that you have the time and kits to provide unbiased feedback to all.

Winners would be decided by KAC Core team members and us along with them.

Why are we doing this?

1. Before we showcase ourselves as a business, we are a group of hobbyists who do feel our responsibility towards better learning for better products for helping each other to make this hobby the best.
2. To have an unbiased review on the product from the hobbyists.

What we are giving:

Category 1: Marine Pure MP2C 1- 2 cubes for cichlid tanks 45 - 120 liters.Tank should be heavily stocked so that the bio load of the tank is optimum for reviewing the product.

Category 2: Marine Pure Mp2C : 1-2 cubes for planted tanks 45-120 liters. Tank should be planted enough or heavily with optimum bio load for reviewing the product.

Category 3: Marine Pure Block : 1 block of 8 X 8 X 4 inches for a reef/marine tank 200 – 300 liters.

Must have to apply:

1. Proper test kits to measure the parameters. (DIY or cheap Chinese test kits would not qualify.)

2. Proper Refractometer or other kit for parameter reading.(Reef/Marine)

What we need from winners (on KAC forum):

1. Willing to share parameters of the tank before introducing the product.

2. Share the parameters without any changes to the tank every week or before introducing any changes or amendments.

3. In case of making changes, take the parameters before making a change and after introduction of the changed subject.

4. Do clearly mention the changes done and amendments.

5. This has to be done for at least 3 months from the date of start so that the product life and proper reading parameters are available for all.

Since you have read till this line, here is what is needed from your side to apply: -

1. Specify which category you are applying for.

2. Full tank shot with which you would be using the product. (Please do Age of the setup)

3. Snapshot of the test kit with tank parameters of the tank while applying.

4. Tank details in terms of size(LXBXH).

5. Tank mates with count and approx. size(Required for all 3 categories).

6. Plant names for Category 2.

7. What is the frequency of water change for this tank?

This one is only for the Pros who have the kit already.

However, all of us will be curious to see the result. There are cases reported where tanks full of Ammonia cleaned by fresh substrates (Matrix in 5 days, Bio Rio in 10 days and SubstratePro in 14 days). Lets see how MarinePure cube fare wrt that.


I failed to understand the intention of your post. If I have understood properly, you dont want to spend money on test kit as it is not financially justified but you want others to do the same thing and post their findings. You are not going to take the feedback from seller, you are not even ready to test it yourself but raising questions on the claimed authenticity of the product.

I was going through the comments of yours in the other thread too, and you were passing judgemental comments about this product even before using it!!

This forum will give all of us enough opportunities to learn about new things and also the chance to test new stuffs. Either be sporty and participate or please refrain passing unnecessary comments unrelated to the posted topic.

NO2, NO3 and Ammonia will be enough to get the idea.

Ammonia is a gud thing to measure bt for dat without ammo spike how to chk its efficiency? Normally the canisters take care of filtration pretty well. Nd a balanced tank might not have no2 either. I am not getting d point on how planted can b used to check the efficiency of this filtration media. Or should one remove their bio media nd put these for a test staking their tank?
