Filters out particulate in ponds and cultivates beneficial bacteria
Matala Filter Media is specifically made for koi ponds. It is made to handle high-level solid waste that is associated with koi. Matala Filter Media is easy to clean and acts like a substrate for the biological filter of your pond. Each pad has its own unique structure lending itself to a different job in your filter system.
As a bio filter Matala Filter is superior to other filters. This is because the filter material is very porous and allows extensive colonization of beneficial bacteria assuming your pond is adequately circulated.
Matala effectively separates large and small particles and still sustains a very aerobic and free flow of water without channeling. Matala is slightly buoyant and will not sink to the bottom of your filter. If Matala is stood vertically on end, it will not float. When stacked horizontally Matala will stay in place. Due to its rigidity Matala sheets will be wedge in place in the filter without support.
