Seachem Laboratories Matrix Carbon - 500mL Information



Part #: 103

Does your fish look a little sad to you? Probably not, but you know if a fish is sad or happy when you look at changes in its behavior. If you disturb the surface of its aquarium, does your fish always swim upwards to check out what's happening or does it usually stay at the bottom of the aquarium? If you find your fish changing its usual behavior, maybe you should think about cleaning the aquarium. Aquarium maintenance, however, can be hard to do without the proper equipment. You may look for the supplies you need in the pet stores or in retailers on the Internet, but here is a product you should check out: Seachem Matrix Carbon Pet Store.

It is activated carbon, a substance used by aquarium hobbyists worldwide to get rid of organic matter floating in the water or that sink to the bottom. Activated carbon adsorb the matter, that is, the organic matter stick to the carbons surface, to make it easier for to clean the tank. Seachem Laboratories' product is made up of several rounded beads to make sure that it will not pack and clean more efficiently. Its ash content is very low to make sure that it has little to no impact on the water's pH. Make sure that your aquarium water is clean and your fish are happy and healthy. Use the Seachem Matrix Carbon.

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.

Comments: I have been using SeaChem's Matrix Carbon for years on my 120g Reef.This product really gets the job done my water is crystal clear day after day.
Low dust requires very little rinse time.
I run my carbon in a mesh bag inside a chem reactor forcing water through it with a pump giving me the best result the I can have with this product.

Comments: 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.
