You could probably go to a rock pit and buy 4 liters for 5 dollars. That's if the person running the place didn't tell you that you could just have such a small amount. Also does anyone know how much each basket on a 2080 holds? I read somewhere 2 liters but 4 wasn't enough to fill 2 baskets. Only filled the second about halfway and the first could've held more.
The 2080 takes 4l per basket and has 3 baskets. Matrix is neither cheap nor heavy, looks like you have been tricked.
I went in the end with the eheim media pack for the 2080 as it came cheaper then buying individual packs of matrix and noodles
