Seachem

SeaChem MatrixCarbon is a truly unique activated carbon, bead shaped for optimal hydrodynamics. This provides maximum water flow and contact with a high density of adsorptive sites without the compacting common to granular activated carbon. MatrixCarbon has a very low ash content as indicated by its minimal impact on pH. Even when added to distilled water, it does not raise pH above 7.0. While all carbons contain phosphate, regardless of false claims to the contrary, MatrixCarbon has the lowest leachable phosphate content of all major carbon brands tested. It out-performs other best grade carbons by at least two-fold when compared for total capacity to remove aquarium organic matter, rate of adsorbtion, and duration of use. 250 mL will easily treat 100 gallons for several months. It is very clean and nearly dust free. The 100 mL bag size will fit any filter on the market and treats over 40 gallons. Marine or freshwater use.

Matrix Carbon

Matrix carbon is the longest lasting carbon on the market and last twice as long if not more. I was sceptical at first until I used it on my 46 gal reef and I went back to another very well known carbon and it didn't even come close. Save your money and I guarantee you will notice the huge difference.

TIME WILL TELL

TO EARLY TO GIVE A FULL DETAIL ON THE CARBON AS FOR HOW WELL IT WORKS BUT I CAN SAY THE DUST ON THIS IS BY FAR THE LEAST OF ANY I HAVE USED SO FAR. I FLUSHED THE NEW CARBON IN MY REACTOR FOR MAYBE 10 SECONDS AND IT WAS CRYSTAL CLEAR. IMPRESSIVE!

fantastic product

I put this matrix in my tank last night about 2 hours before lights out and it started to work right away. Then when i woke up this morning my water was so crystal clear I couldn't believe it.my tank has never been so clear. I was like my fish were swimming through air. I'm amazed at how fast it works. I would recommend this product to everyone. It's a must have. I put it in my reactor. Love it. Ill stay with this product from now on. Koodos marine depot on another great product.

Carbon Matrix is great

Carbon Matrix works great in a reactor setting. It tubbles very easily so you do not have to force a lot of flow through the reactor. My water is always crystal clear. You will not be disappointed with this product.

Great Product!

Im using Matrix Carbon in a TLF reactor for my 120 gallon Cichlid tank and can not be any happier. Best part is that it last 4x as long as the previous product I was using. By far the best carbon I have come accross to date.

The best

Seachem Labs Matrix Carbon is the best on the market bar none! It rinses easily and performs even better removing impurities from the water. As with any high end carbon it's always important to do water changes and monitor your elements. Matrix carbon is definitely an absolute must when it comes to water quality, water purity and proven results!
