Bacteria colonies on the internal and external surface area of Matrix
Matrix is a high porosity biomedia that provides efficient biofiltration for the removal of nitrogenous waste we use this in all of our pond filters with amazing results.
Matrix is a porous inorganic solid about 7mm to 20mm in diameter ph of 8.5 perfect for koi ponds.
Each litre of Matrix provides as much surface (>~700 m2) as 170 litres of plastic balls! Plastic bio-materials such as k1 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 is compatible with all types of filters for freshwater fish available from Sydney pond and aquarium supplies Cabramatta west 0416784572
