WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
I recently purchased several items from your business. Thank you. Excellent service and prompt delivery along with really well packed items.
- Mark
Great service from Aquarium Kingdom with prompt reply, informative details, great prices & supplied tracking ensuring I know exactly what to expect.
- Nicole T Henley Beach, South Australia
Excellent service. Very knowledgeable staff, great communication. I've shopped here a number of times and have never been disappointed. Thanks so much!
- Devon L.
I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for your speedy shipment of the order I placed on Monday. I was so shocked to see it on my doorstep on Tuesday!! I don't think we commend one another enough when we do a great job, it's usually only when something goes wrong that you hear about it! So thanks again, and I will be shopping from your store more in the future!

Seachem Matrix Carbon 1L

MatrixCarbon™ is a truly unique activated carbon. It is formed as a spherical bead for optimum hydrodynamics, and will not pack. It permits maximum water flow and contact with its high density of macroporous binding sites. 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 detectable leachable phosphate content of all major carbon brands tested. MatrixCarbon™ outperforms other high grade carbons by at least two-fold when compared for total capacity to remove aquarium organic matter, rate of adsorption, and duration of use.

Why It's Different
While carbon is generally considered to be a chemical filter, that is not precisely true. It is in fact a mechanical filter as well, but it is only capable of mechanically filtering objects of molecular size. It functions through extremely small cracks and crevices, called macropores and micropores. Microporous carbons remove primarily metals and smaller ions (like trace minerals) and are best suited to air filtration, while macroporous carbons remove primarily larger organic molecules (like nitrogenous waste) and are best suited to water filtration.

The ingredients from which a carbon is manufactured determine whether it will be macro- or microporous. Carbons made from coconut shell and other organic products form microporous carbons, while carbons made from bituminous coal form macroporous carbons. MatrixCarbon™ is a bituminous coal-based, macroporous carbon. It is the only spherical carbon on the market, allowing for maximum water flow. It is sized to allow full penetration by water, but not small enough to escape filter bags. All carbons contain phosphate. However, that phosphate DOES NOT come from washing the carbon with phosphoric acid. Most carbons are washed with sulfuric acid. The phosphate is contained in the ash from the carbon source. The main purpose of acid-washing is to remove ash. Because of MatrixCarbon’s™ hydrodynamic properties, more ash is washed from our carbon than any other. Therefore, it has the lowest leachable phosphate on the market.

Directions:
Each 1L of Matrix Carbon™ will treat 1600L for several months.
Use in a filter media bag. (Not included)
Rinse before use.
It may be used in a canister filter, chemical filtration module, box filter, or any high flow area of a trickle filter. For best results, Matrix Carbon™ should be placed so as to maximize the flow of water through it.
