Matrix is a high porosity biomedia that provides efficient biofiltration for the removal of nitrogenous waste. Matrix is a porous inorganic solid about 10mm in diameter.
- High capacity biofiltration
- Controls ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate
- Highly porous - enormous surface area (>~700 m2/L)
- Supports aerobic and anaerobic bacteria species
Use 250mL of Matrix for each 200L (50 US gallons) of water. Matrix may be placed in any kind of filter, and is particularly effective in a canister filter. Matrix is sufficiently large that no filter bag should be required for most applications.
