The 2007 28g Nano-Cube HQI-Reef Series from JBJ incorporates many high-tech features not commonly found i
n "all-in-one" systems. The concept behind the 28g Nano-Cube HQI was inspired by reef hobbyists who requested higher powered lighting, protein skimming, increased water circulation, a more simplified filter, storage area in the stand for chillers and designated water level columns in the rear chambers for heaters, refugiums and protein skimmers.

By using equal volumes of each component, aquarium hobbyists can maintain calcium and alkalinity levels with no mixing powders, disruption of ionic balance or addition of organic chemicals. It also provides all other important major, minor and trace elements in the proper ratios to duplicate the composition of natural seawater. B-Ionic Calcium Buffer System will help restore inorganic ions lost from protein skimming and help maintain the ionic balance of the aquarium water.

CaribSea Purple Up Coralline Algae Accelerator

Purple Up uses a unique dual-method approach to coralline algae acceleration. First, ionic calcium immediately raises dissolved calcium levels in your aquarium water. Next, ten micron aragonite targets the live rock surface, where it dissolves in situ (in place), delivering calcium, strontium, magnesium and carbonate right where it is needed.
