    Its claimed to be able to remove nutrients disregarding redfields ratio & removes nitrates & phosphates quicker according to @irie ivan (please correct me if im wrong...)

    Reduces Nitrates and a bit of Phos, disregarding redfields ratio. So if no phos is present it will still reduce Nitrates.

    Titanium is used in tanks that's normally suffering with high Nitrates BUT the po4 levels are very low, it overcomes redfield...
    So if you're running a phophate reactor and have hardly any po4 issues but your nitrates are high, then titanium is for you...if not, then normal biocubes...they can be mixed together ... :)

    Removes Nitrates irrespective of PO4 levels...

    Does remove nitrates extremely fast apparently. Have not tested it myself, as I do not have an NO3 to remove :(!

    Have discussed it with people that have tested it and have no reason to doubt them. Really intrigued by the science behind this, at the point of demanding an explanation.
    @KillerWhale You are a sponsor now, I believe you are in a safe location behind your keyboard and the CIA wont track you, they too busy google earthing my garden, so c'mon!! spill the beans!

    they work by removing nitrates without consuming PO4, as explained above its to remove nitrates from a PO4 deficient system , as normal NO3 assimilation requires the ration of C:N:p to effectively work.

    so if you have PO4 and NO3 you can use normal bio-cubes and get PO4 and NO3 removal, if you are showing 0 PO4 and have NO3 use titanium.

    you can mix both to create a smart bomb to target both scenarios , i will post my results and explanations on the smart bomb thread

    Ah so the V4 bio cubes are still good to use. I though the titanium version would replace it
