Matala filter media is expensive, but definitely worth it for some applications! Made of rigid fiber compounds, it is used in many applications in the aquaculture and koi pond markets. It is excellent for removing solid wastes and, unlike other filter padding, totally resists compression!
The solid fibers are very resistant to sludge build-up and clogging, making cleaning easy. It also features a lot of surface area, so it is very good for biological filtration.
Great for low-pressure, gravity-fed filters and skimmers, Matala filter media is positively buoyant and may require anchoring in submersed applications. Matala filter media is sold in 39 1/2" L x 24" W x 1 1/2" H sheets only. Ships Oversize.
