Seachem Matrix Carbon

Seachem Matrix Carbon is a truly unique activated carbon. Matrix permits maximum water flow and contact with its high density of macroporous binding sites. The media features very low ash content, and has minimal impact on pH even when added to distilled water(Does not raise pH above 7.0.). While all carbons contain phosphate, MatrixCarbon™ gives you the lowest detectable leachable phosphate content of all major carbon brands tested.
