Seachem Matrix – High Capacity Biofiltration for both fresh and salt water, that supports aerobic & anaerobic bacteria species and controls ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate.

Description:

Matrix™ is a high porosity biomedia that provides efficient biofiltration for the removal of nitrogenous waste. Matrix™ is a porous inorganic solid about 10 mm in diameter. Each liter of Matrix™ provides as much surface (>~700 m2) as 170 liters of plastic balls! Plastic bio-materials provide only external surface area, whereas Matrix™ provides both external and internal macroporous surface area. These macropores are ideally sized for the support of nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria. This allows Matrix™, unlike other forms of biomedia, to remove nitrate along with ammonia and nitrite, simultaneously and in the same filter.

Matrix™ is completely inert and will not breakdown. It need not be replaced. Since the majority of the bacteria are internal, Matrix™ may be rinsed when needed without damaging the filter. Matrix™ is compatible with all types of wet or wet-dry filters.

FAQ:

A: Matrix™ is a biomedia, meaning it does not exhaust over time, so you should never need to replace it. That said it is possible for Matrix™ media to become clogged up with detritus and slime, so we recommend regular filter maintenance to ensure it continues working as efficiently as possible. The frequency with which a canister filter needs to be opened and cleaned out varies from tank to tank, but a good starting point is once a month.

A: We recommend that water flow through filter media in this order:
1. Mechanical filtration (filter floss, sponges, etc.)
2. Chemical filtration (MatrixCarbon, PhosGuard, Purigen, etc)
3. Biological filtration (Matrix)
Every filter is different, so the exact placement of Matrix™ will vary from brand to brand.  Consult your filter’s instruction manual to find the direction of flow for your filter.

A: This all depends on the stage of biological establishment of your tank, placement of Matrix™ and flow rate. Generally you will start to see improvement in a couple of weeks but every situation varies.

A: No, It is an inert media that will not directly impact your pH.

Dosage Calculator:

Use 250 mL of Matrix™ for each 200 L (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. Matrix™ works well in drip tray systems, but you may find that the larger Pond Matrix™ is better suited for such applications. Use with Stability® to more rapidly establish the bio-filter.

**This dosage may differ from your packaging. Based on updated studies, we’ve found Matrix™ treats even more water than previously asserted.
