What’s the filtration?
First chamber where the overflows are going into is filter mat on top of 4 layers of matala mat filter. After that the water passes through another section of matala mat and then into a very long section mostly ceramic material with some lava rock and then return pump. First section is mechanical and aerobic bacteria biological and the long (14 foot) section is anaerobic bacteria zone which combined with all of the live plants works towards complete denitrification.
