Floating moving bed filling
This bio filter media is meant to be moving at all times by air or water current. It can be used indoors or outdoors. When used for aquarium sump tanks, you may need an air pump to put some air into water to make the filter media move. It would be more efficient if there are micro bubbles in the water.
Easy to use & Less maintenance
It’s very easy to use the filter media, just pour the media into the water of the sump tank. You wouldn’t have to clean it at all, just let the media stay at where they are, then change water regularly.
Get more surface area
A small cylinder inner space is divided into 5 equal parts. The inner and outer walls of the cylinder is filled with extrusive stripes which largely increases surface area with water. It’s good for biofilm formation and the growth of beneficial bacteria. The K1 filter media is most efficient in moving media bio filter system for aquarium.
Wide filtration application
This filter media can be used for fresh water and marine aquariums, koi ponds, aquaponics, aquaculture, and hydroponics filtration. You can use this in places where water filtration is needed. The biofilm formation time is 15 – 30 days.
Directions for Use
1. When you use the biofilter for aquariums, please remember to add the biofilm filter K1 media to the filtration sump, not directly to the fish tank.
2. No need to make too much movement for the sump water, just use air pump to put air into water to make filter media to move a little.
3. After putting the K1 filter media in use, there is no need to maintain or clean it. Just let it stay where they are.
4. To get better filter effect, the maximum packing ratio of filler should be less than 70%.
