Matrix is a highly porous media designed to provide exceptionally efficient bio filtration for single site removal of ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate from freshwater, marine, and reef aquaria. Each liter of matrix provides over 160,000 cm2 (170 sq. Ft.) of surface, equivalent to over 40 L (10 gallons) of typical plastic ball media! this product is sold by volume. Cited weight is minimal weight. Matrix is a naturally mined, chemically inert material for facilitating the growth of biological filtration in aquarium and pond systems. Due to its organic nature - size, shape, coloration, and density of the matrix material will vary slightly between packages. Any of These variants and small irregularities in sizing are perfectly natural and will not affect the integrity of the product or its ability to maintain water quality. It will also not affect pH in the system.
Seachem Matrix Bio Media
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 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.

Tank is lightly stocked and planted and I was even doing large water changes (50% weekly) to keep nitrates in control. Have a Siamese algae eater but he alone was struggling to keep the tank and decor free of algae. nothing I tried seemed to make a difference (using API test kit to measure nitrates and phosphates).
Got recommended Matrix and I was initially very sceptical.
Popped the recommended dose for a 125ltr tank into my external filter (JBL e901 cristalprofi).
No difference in nitrates and still reading 40ppm. Decent range for a planted tank should be within the 5ppm range.
Tested it again after a water change thinking I knew what to expect; nitrates would still be sky high. Thought I was misreading the test kit when it was reading 5ppm of nitrates (light yellow).
Tap water is high in nitrates and phosphates at source. However, the use of Matrix and large water changes has noticeably reduced the green dust and spot algae. Plant leaves are free of algae and look much more colourful and vibrant.
