Finally, I would strongly recommend you to read the theory behind the mat filter from the Deters website. It is, in my opinion, very important to notice e.g. that the flow rate of water in the mat should not be too high so that the nitrogen bacteria inhabiting the mat can oxidize the ammonia and nitrites into nitrates.
