Product Description

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. 

Note: 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. Black Matala cannot be folded due to it's rigid nature. So the full size mats are only available in a max. size of 39"x 42" to avoid oversize shipping charges. Thank you for your understanding!
