seachem matrix :>

Nope, no real need to replace Matrix as it isn't an absorbent type media (i.e. Seachem Purigen, which can be recharged anyways). Instead if you think it's getting a little dirty then simply wash and rinse in a bucket of in tank water . This should remove enough unnecessary gunk and still leave you with the bacteria living on it.

i just wash my canisters and matrix with a hose, much much easier to clean. Dont worry about bacteria it grows back very fast, as there is plenty of it in the gravel, well i guess this is advice if you have more than 1 canister.

By using a hose to wash it you are killing the denitrifying bacteria that you have in the matrix.

The easiest way is not always the best. wink2.gif
