Boyd's Chemi-mat
The Answer to all your phosphate problems
Chemi-Mat is a revolutionary 12" x 12" phosphate filter pad for salt and fresh tanks. Simple and easy to use – just drop it into your tank, and it starts removing phosphates within 24 hours. After a total of 36-48 hours, simply remove the pad and throw it away. There's no physical breakdown of the pad and no phosphates released back into tank. Chemi-Mat contains no chemicals, does not affect pH and eliminates almost all PO4. 

With Chemi-mat you can rid yourself of all the problems associated with the other phosphate removers. Some remove phosphates to slowly; some give concern that there will be a reaction to the other chemicals present in your aquarium. Other methods have a physical breakdown, endangering both the filtration system and the aquarium chemical balance. The chemi-mat pad is built both chemical and structurally sound and it will retain its integrity not only during the 48 hours that it requires to eradicate the phosphate, but for as long as you leave it in place.

Chemi-mat requires an initial wetting out period for 24 hours, prior to be coming active. then it will absorb the phosphates as they pass through the pad for an additional 24 hours (two days total).because chemi-mat can not release the captured phosphate, the pad may be left safely in the aquarium or filter for an extended period pass the minimum 48 hours. when the process has been completed simply remove the pad and discard.

Chemi- mat should only be used when you have identified the phosphates are present. This is normally indicated by an out growth of hair algae or the use of phosphate test kit. All though no harm will be done to you’re aquarium, if you ad another pad for normal maintenance, it will be impossible to know when the pad has become fully saturated.

Chemi-mat comes with two 6”x 12”in sheets; both must be used simultaneously and will treat up to 400 gallons. Chemi-mat can be placed in almost any filter and does not need water to be forced through it simply ensure that the pad is completely submerged and if installed in the filter, has an adequate flow over or through it. Chemi-mat can not be regenerated.
