Simplicity that works and flexibility that covers various requirements!
The basic cubefilter is a simple internal filter that is air-driven: cubes of Poret® foam are glued with silicone onto a tile used as a base. In principle, you could use any stone or slate plate but silicone sticks better to a ceramic or porcelain tile since it has similar properties as glass. Using stone or slate proved disappointing because the silicone really does not stick to it long-term.
What makes our cubefilters the front runner are the highly efficient Jetlifter™ & Cubelifter™. Poret® is specifically manufactured for aquarium and pond use and has a very large inner surface (>2,200 in2 per 4″ cube in 30 PPI), which permits rapid and superior growth of microbial cultures.
