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. 


Due to the large dimensions of the 39"x48" size mat, it must be folded in half to ship by USPS, UPS or FedEx. This will not affect the function of your filter mat. Since black Matala cannot be folded due to its rigid nature, black mats are only available in sizes up to 39"x 42". Thank you for your understanding!

    So much better than the older flexible media. Easy to cut to fit my pond filter and they stay in place. My pond is crystal clear in one week.
