More Information:

 The Hamburg Matten filter is the best Biological filtration . It is a durable foam that is completely shrimp and fish safe. Recently, we began experimenting with Matten filters in our shrimp breeding tanks. After just a few short months, we saw a huge change in the health of our shrimp and the behavior.

The Matten filter provides a whole wall of filtration. The surface area ( 1920 cm2 )is usually 2 to 4 times as large as a standard sponge filter. This is great for colonizing bacteria, reducing risk of clogs and it provides a surface where baby shrimp can scavenge. The filter will be littered with biofilm and micro organisms that are essential to the survival of baby shrimp and fish.

The sponge holder is 16 bar rated WRASS approved (suitable for portable water) PVC U pipe.

Recommended Power head is 600-900 L/h
