Matala filter media is one of the widest used and critically acclaimed filter media on the market. Featured in leading pond, koi, and fish care magazines, it is very popular for good reason!
Matala sheets provide mechanical and biological filtration by trapping debris as water easily flows through the sheets. Bacteria colonize along the debris and filter surface area, keeping your pond water clean and clear of algae.
The Matala filter construction is firm, stable, and semi rigid while not being brittle. It even boasts a high level of crush resistance. Matala filter media can also be trimmed very easily, providing great versatility. Each size of Matala sheet measures approximately 1.5 inches thick.
|Matala Color||Density||Biological surface area for microbial growth||Flow-through space|
|Black||Coarse||62 square feet per cubic foot||92%|
|Green||Medium||96 square feet per cubic foot||93%|
|Blue||High||124 square feet per cubic foot||94%|
|Gray||Super High||171 square feet per cubic foot||94%|
Matala Information Sheet
Great course media that will last forever
Ordered this stuff because I was tired of having to replace the media in my 55 gallon drum filter when it would clog or break down.When this first came I couldnt believe how rigid it was. I was able to use a small hand saw to cut the pads to fit the barrel and still have plenty left to use for other stuff. So far so good. Pricey when compared to others but definitely durable enough to last way longer.
Makes a great Pond Filter
This product is easy to cut to fit and it has greatly improved the clarity of my koi pond.
Great layers of filters but not easy to clean
The fine filters get very heavy when cleaning is needed and then require a lot of water to clean. However they do a great job keeping the water clean.
Matala filter material
The best filter material on the market. Never use anything else. Cleans up good lasts a long time.

Ok if you own an AOI aquarium get the gray size. Your filter socks will last a few weeks with this media and works sweet as a fish, fry, shrimp guard.

Works great. The filters (stacked vertically) removed almost all the minute floating particles in a 17,000gal pond within two weeks (with a 5000gph pump).
