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.

Directions:

Use 250 mL of Matrix™ for each 100 L (25 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.

I can't give this a full review yet but will come back in a few months if I can remember! I just added 500mL to my 25gal nano reef to see if I can get nitrate-reduction effect happening. The product (the little pebbles) fit really well into the caddies in the back chambers, and whatever I couldn't fit I have hanging in a mesh back in the return chamber. It's not messy, easy to rinse, and I see no negative effects from adding all 500mL at once. It will take a few more weeks or months in order to see any obvious outcomes! If anything I hope it increases bacterial stability and boosts biological filtration. Lower nitrates is bonus.

Advantages: Easy to use, not messy, can add directly into media caddy of AIO tanks, or hang in bags. Or add to sump if running. It's nice to have extra biofiltration in case I need to set up another tank or a QT. Fair enough price I think.

Disadvantages: None so far!
