****100% PREMIUM QUALITY Virgin Polyethylene. NOT RECYCLED Material! Beware of sellers offering recycled media, which can be TOXIC! ****1 Gallon of K1 MICRO Bio Filter Media. K1 Bio Media has been one of the most well documented biological solutions for the treatment of water for ponds, aquariums, and waste water. Excellent for Discus breeding tanks and tanks used for growing fry as the unique action of the moving K1 reduces ammonia and nitrate much quicker than static media.
Evolution Aqua K1 filtermedium in micro format was especially developed for the aquarist. With a diameter of 7 mm and a height of 5 mm they fit in any aquariumfilter. Bacteria that are involved in the circle of nitrification colonize on K1 Micro. Due to its unique construction the medium gets an enormously protected area of settlement in comparison to many other static filter media.
Used in Bio Media filtration processes around the world, Bio Cell filter media has been scientifically tested and frequently used in fish farming and waste water treatment for many years.This media is excellent quality and perfect for all fluidised moving/static-bed pond and aquarium filters, ideal for D.I.Y projects and conversions.Option 1 Dimensions: 10mm (W) x 10mm DiameterOption 2 Dimensions: 12mm (W) x 25mm DiameterAvailable in 3, 5, 10, 25, 50 litre portions (measured by bucket) - please select required size and volume using the dropdown.
K1 media is engineered in a wheel shape and is slightly positively buoyant. This near neutral buoyancy allows the media to circulate throughout the vessel with only a minimal water flow. This flow is created with your air pump and air stones or diffuser etc. How it works?Maturing the K1 bio-media is important because a delicate Eco-system is naturally developing for the bacteria involved in the nitrification process.
K1 media has been used by Evolution Aqua in Koi filtration systems for a number of years. This new type of filter media, K1 Micro, contains all of the benefits of traditional K1 media but is extruded in a much smaller form. The small wheel shaped filter media pieces provide a significantly increased protected surface area per cubic metre when compared to standard K1 for bacteria to colonise.
