January 2013


Happy New Year -2013 is here ! And this time of year I like to show  what is  now available and my favorite for the water gardener and their pond, koi pond or water feature. This newsletter will look at books, pumps, filters, and filter media. If you are thinking about an upgrade for your pond  in plants or filtration we have a few ideas for you.


I love at this time of year,  to sit down with some good reading material. The Lotus Know It and Grow It is a fun book . Written by Kelly Billings and Paula Biles for the International Water Garden Society to show off lotus to current admirers and introduce it to readers who have not yet been captivated by Nelumbo's charms. Priced only $9.00





We also have Brooklyn Botanical Gardens' books for all types of gardening at a discounted price of only $5.95 You can find a complete selection on the web site. www.grasslandaquatics.com

Matala Filter Mat


Do you just love the filter media in the Matala pre filter?

Now it is available in a 24x39" sheet great for filtration that does not channel and collapse when it full.


Introducing Matala mat. It is a perfect "drop in" media for biological filters, filterfalls, Vortex filters, and barrel filters .


Matala is slightly buoyant and will not sink to the bottom of your filter. Matala stood vertically on end will not float. Matala stacked horizontally will hold each other down. Due

to it's rigidity the Matala can be wedged in place in the filter without support.
