R-Matala, the perfect "drop in" media for Vortex filters and barrel filters. R-Matala has the same qualities as the sheets of Matala but formed into a coiled pre-cut cartridge. Simply select the diameter roll and the density you need for your round tank and drop it in. R-Matala coils are not designed to be un-rolled. They are pre-cut to fit your tank. Custom sizes can be special ordered.

MATALA: ROUND 22-BLACK/SUPER COARSE

Black Matala is the least dense of the four densities. It should be used for filtering the largest dirt particles. The Black R-Matala is 6 inches thick so it is surprising how much dirt it can really trap.

The Black Matala® filter media can be used as a support grate for other layers of media due to it’s very sturdy and open design. In a settling chamber the Black will slow down and trap very large particles and hair algae.

The Black R-Matala will function as a prefilter to the biological section. The Black media can remove dirt particles before they reach the biological section. As a bonus, the Black Matala can also function as a biological filter due to it's available surface area for bacteria attachment. It is very versatile.

MATALA: ROUND 22-GREEN/COARSE

The Green R-Matala traps a medium size particle. Both Green and Black clean out very easily by simply shaking the pieces out before draining the sump. When you use the Black or Green Matala® for solids filtering you may use the garden hose to spray them clean. The dirt falls off very easily.

The Green R-Matala will function as a prefilter to the biological section. The green media can remove dirt particles before they reach the biological section. As a bonus, the Green Matala can also function as a biological filter due to it's available surface area for bacteria attachment. It is very versatile.

R-Matala will naturally wedge in place without any need for support. However, you must measure the inside diameter of your tank and order the coil size which fits tight. If the coil fits too loose then the water will flow around the pads instead of through them. Four sequential densities can be perfectly employed to achieve maximum solids / bio-filtration. Each roll is 6 inches thick with a tremendous potential to trap dirt and yet is super easy to clean. Simply drain the waste out your bottom drain and gently pour pond water over the R-Matala

MATALA: ROUND 22-BLUE/FINE

The Blue Matala® will filter out a much smaller particle and yet still maintain good flow distribution. In larger systems all four types can be used in sequence to essentially remove all solids.

The Blue R-Matala is a superb biological filter media, due to it's high available surface area and open passageways. The nitrifying bacteria can thrive in this environment. It is always best to prefilter the dirt with Black or Green Matala first in order to keep the Blue biological section clean and free flowing.

MATALA: ROUND 22-GREY/SUPER FINE

The Gray Matala® will filter out a much smaller particle and yet still maintain good flow distribution. The Gray R-Matala should be used as the final stage in your filter flow. In larger systems all four types can be used in sequence to essentially remove all solids.

The Gray R-Matala should be used as a high efficiency biological filter media due to it's very high available surface area and free flow of water. Nitrifying bacteria will thrive within the Gray R-Matala environment.
