    I'd skip these... what do you want them for?

    Better to have Live rock and orca bio cubes IMHO

    Why? They work very well, been using them for ages. Back up statements with facts not just hearsay and sentiment.

    I'm a huge fan of the Seachem products but these are just expensive rocks...

    Something like Purigen is a much better option...

    rocks just take up space and trap dirt, I'd be giving the same advice if it were ceramic rings...

    Purigen is a chemical remover. Matrix is for biological filtration. 500ml will have enough surface area to treat 400 litres of water, great for someone who has limited space in the sump for live rock. They never break apart or run out. Purigen is very expensive as well.
    You might have top learn a little about your products. :p

    btw:
    Directions
    Use 500 mL of Matrix™ for each 200 L (50 gallons*) of water.

    Good on you @carlosdeandrade. Seachem matrix is a great way to increase biological surface area of a system.
