Mobile Hamburg Matten Biological Sponge Filter
With double 20 mm airlift
FOR AQUARIUMS HIGHT TO MAX 35- 50 CM AND UP TO 200- 250L
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 Biological filter is extremely silent and very powerfull filtration system.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 ( 2140 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 air lift is premium quality (Czech design) made from 20 mm, 16 bar rated WRASS approved (suitable for portable water) PVC U pipe.
The flow created by the lift tubes on the Matten filter provide the ideal amount of flow for a freshwater shrimp tank. It creates an ideal current that flows from top to bottom. By having the bottom of the lift tube close to the bottom of the tank, it is essential moving water from the bottom of the tank to the top of the tank. This creates great circulation throughout the whole tank.
