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.
Seachem MatrixCarbon Spherical Carbon Media 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. Seachem MatrixCarbon Spherical Carbon Media outperforms other high grade carbons by at least two-fold when compared for total capacity to remove aquarium organic matter, rate of absorption, and duration of use.
