Seachem believes that offering customer education and support, as well as premium products proven by science, are the cornerstones for delivering quality aquarium care. For over 40 years, Seachem has been a company rooted in science, and is owned and operated by genuine passionate hobbyists. Seachem itself was started because one such passionate hobbyist - Dr. Leo G. Morin (Founder) - recognised that the available solutions to aquarists problems were wanting. Over thirty years later, Seachem is still approaching old problems with a fresh, innovative lense.

Seachem Matrix is a high porosity biomedia that provides efficient biofiltration to remove nitrogenous waste. Matrix is a porous inorganic solid measuring about 10 mm in diameter. Each litre of Matrix provides as much surface area (>~700 m2) as 170 liters of plastic balls! Plastic bio-materials provide only external surface area, whereas Matrix provides both external and internal macroporous surface area. These macropores are ideally sized for the support of nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria. This allows Matrix, unlike other forms of biomedia, to remove nitrate along with ammonia and nitrite, simultaneously and in the same filter.

Seachem Matrix is completely inert and will not breakdown. It does not need to be replaced. Since the majority of the bacteria are internal, Matrix may be rinsed when needed without damaging the filter. Matrix is compatible with all types of wet or wet-dry filters.
