The various densities of Matala filter media can be used in sequence or separately for unique biological filtration requirements. This is one of the greatest characteristics which Matala has to offer. No other bio-filter media on the market can perform this step-wise filtration. Matala effectively separates large particles to small and still maintains a very aerobic and free flow of water without channeling. Easy to cut to size these filters will last 3-4 times as long as conventional filter materials.
Matala Half Sheets are 24" x 39.5" x 1.5"
The Black Matala can be used as a support grate for other layers of media due to its very sturdy and open design. In a settling chamber the Black will slow down and trap very large particles and hair algae.
When using the Black or Green Matala for solids filtering the garden hose can be used to spray them clean. The dirt falls off very easily.
The Green Matala can follow thereby trapping a medium size particle. Both Green and Black clean out very easily by simply shaking the pieces out before draining the sump.

A good biofilter needs a lot of surface area with open spaces between for good aerated water flow. A high surface area is useless if the passageways are so small that water flow cannot penetrate.
The Blue Matala® filter media will filter out a much smaller particle and yet still maintain good flow distribution. In larger systems all four types can be used in sequence to essentially remove all solids.
Matala filter media is a progressive filter Material that is self supporting and multifunctional. Used for prefiltering, mechanical filter media, biological filtration, spawning mat, plant protection, and as a support for other filter medias. Uniquely versatile, Matala filter mats are easy to work with and can fit most all filtration needs.
The Grey Matala Filter mats will filter out a much smaller particle and yet still maintain good flow distribution. In larger systems all four types can be used in sequence to essentially remove all solids.
Matala media works perfectly with upflow filter designs. The ideal configuration would be the Matala filter media stood vertically rather than flat. This allows for easier cleaning. All you do is grab an individual piece and shake it up and down to clean it. If your filter chamber is packed to tight, take out one piece first.
Fall is upon us with the days growing shorter and the leaves just starting to turn.
This is the time to start preparing the koi pond for the winter months ahead. As
the water temperature drops the metabolism of the koi pond starts slowing down...
The sound of water flowing down a shallow stream or over a waterfall is like natures
relaxing music. It also adds biological filtration and oxygen to the water. Creating
a waterfall or stream that looks natural is easier than you might think...
