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.

250 mL will easily treat 400 L (100 gallons*) for several months. MatrixCarbon™ is very clean and nearly dust free. For best results, MatrixCarbon™ should be placed so as to maximize the flow of water through it. It may be used in a canister filter, chemical filtration module, box filter, or any high flow area of a trickle filter.

Love it!
I love this carbon! The media is rounded so there is no compacting of the carbon which allows for water to move evenly around every single pellet thus utilizing every single pellet. They say you get what you pay for, and in this case. It was worth every penny. I got the big jar and I used half of it in my media reactor along with some bio-pellets and it works wonders. I can see the media being moved around in the reactor so I know for a fact that there is no compacting and that it works!

Excellent Carbon
Seachem has great products. I put in a bag in my return side of my sump. The water rushes thru the bag with carbon. Water is crystal clear!
