Seachem SeaChem 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 (<162 m) as 40 liters of plastic balls! Plastic bio-materials provide only external surface area, whereas Matrix provides 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. Use 1-2 Liters of Matrix for each 100 gallons. 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. Marine or freshwater use.

REVIEW
Good media if you want a minimal aquascape. Cheap compared to others and doesn't leach anything like some other media does. Seems to work but haven't seen any denitrification happen.

REVIEW
2 liters of Seachem Matrix fit perfectly in one of the baskets in my large Marineland canister filter. After researching the very best filter media for my canister, I added Seachem Matrix with a poly filter, RowaPhos, 2 Chemi Pure blue and a fine filter pad. This combo has made my already clear reef...Read More

REVIEW
II I am very pleased with the quality of this product! I was resigned to the long drudgery of waiting six weeks or so for my new reef to cycle. After only a few days with Matrix, the other wise skyrocketing nitrate not only leveled it dropped from approx. 10ppm to .25ppm in three days after addin...Read More
