    Does anybody have any experiences with this and if so what is the verdict? looks interesting but not sure I want to buy enough for my 240L tank until I see some proof it actually works. (6 rocks per 80L of water needed apparently.)

    here's the link...

    I heard about a similar product that some members here said weren't necessary for shrimp.

    @richie.p have any ideas?

    Not on this this one I've just read up on it and have mixed thoughts is says less water changes so are they saying it puts minerals back in (dont think do,) its larva rock at the end of the day and that to me is something I'd put in a filter for beneficial bacteria or it's also used in biorb tanks but at that price I'll stick to my Biohome media

    Yeah ita pretty pricy expecially when you have larger tank.

    Seems too good to be true. Too much positives and not enough proof imo

    If it really is lava rock, it is not porous at all. Lava rock is not that good.


    Here too.

    I've seen that video before it's very informative

    Agree... once your start digging there are a lot of myths out there.

    This is what made me want matrix for my tank! Good info! Thankfully there was someone out there who took the time out to make this video!

    I dont know if you've seen the porous test done and it's so simple, put some ich med in the top cap then the media you want to test just put the tip into it and the more porous it is the quicker you get blue fingers, iv not tried it on matrix but it surely shoots up the Biohome media

    And did they break the Biohome in half to see if it went inside or just the outside? Just a thought... most likely it did...

    Yes he did break it in half and 100% coverage
