More Information:

The Matten filters here at Flip Aquatics are made out of the same material as 99% of the sponge filters on the market. It is a durable foam that is completely shrimp and fish safe. Recently, we began experimenting with Matten filters in our shrimp breeding tanks. After just a few short months, we saw a huge change in the health of our shrimp and the behavior. Shrimp breeding picked up and baby shrimp survival rates started to rise. Here are the two reasons we feel Matten Filters are the best filtration for freshwater shrimp tanks: surface area and flow.

The Matten filter provides a whole wall of filtration. The surface area is usually 2 to 4 times as large as a standard sponge filter. This is great for colonizing bacteria, reducing risk of clogs and it provides a surface where baby shrimp can scavenge. The filter will be littered with biofilm and micro organisms that are essential to the survival of baby shrimp.

The flow created by the lift tubes on the Matten filter provide the ideal amount of flow for a freshwater shrimp tank. It creates an ideal current that flows from top to bottom. By having the bottom of the lift tube close to the bottom of the tank, it is essential moving water from the bottom of the tank to the top of the tank. This creates great circulation throughout the whole tank.

Matten filter 40

This is the 2nd one I have bought. Great filter! Huge area for shrimp to feed on. I have canister, hang on back, and sponge filters but the matten is the best by far!
