Maturing the K1 bio-media is essential since a delicate eco-system is normally creating for the bacteria involved in the nitrification procedure. K1 media offers the maximum active area for the micro organisms to colonise, greater than other kinds of fixed media. It is this procedure which removes damaging ammonia as well as nitrite from the water. As the K1 media moves within the filter, it causes the old dead germs on the outside to be displaced. This makes room for new younger larger feeding germs to swiftly colonize. Within the wheel is a secured surface which allows swarms of germs to naturally follow their life-cycle, of maturing, passing away and after that sustaining the last phases of the nitrification cycle. K1 has been developed to offer the most effective possible habitat for both young as well as fully grown helpful microbial colonies.Unlike foam, matting, or other kinds of static filtering media, the K1 media is developed to move openly within your filter. The continuous disorderly motion of the air from your pump, creates the media to self clean and therefore needs no maintenance. This enables the filter to reach maximum efficiency without the disruption of periodic cleansing, avoiding unnecessary loss of bacteria within the filter. 50 Litres of K1 media will certainly manage approximately 250 grammes of food per day and for K3, 225 grammes of food per day. For retrofit of existing filters, K3 media is the most appropriate because of its bigger dimension as well as ease of control.
