Matten Filters are the best filtration for freshwater shrimp/fish keeping and Fish breeding. The amount of surface area the filter creates makes a great feeding surface for shrimp/fish and baby shrimp. Microorganisms thrive on the sponges surface making it an ideal place for shrimp to find natural food.

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 ( 960 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 (suittable for portable water) PVC U pipe.
