K5 MBBR Filter Media / 250g packet

Maturing the K5 Media bio-media is important because a delicate eco-system is naturally developing for the bacteria involved in the nitrification process. K5 Media provides the maximum active surface area for the bacteria to colonize, more than other types of static media. It is this process that removes harmful ammonia and nitrite from the water.

How it is different from other media As the K5 Media moves within the filter, it causes the old dead bacteria on the outside to be displaced. This makes space for new younger heavier feeding bacteria to rapidly colonize. Within the wheel is a protected surface that enables colonies of bacteria to naturally follow their life cycle, of maturing, dying, and then fueling the latter stages of the nitrification cycle.

K5 Media has been designed to provide the best possible habitat for both young and mature beneficial bacterial colonies. What is meant by ‘self-cleaning’ Unlike foam, matting, or other forms of static filtration media, the K5 Media is designed to move freely within your filter. The constant chaotic movement of the air from your pump causes the media to self-clean and thus requires no maintenance. This allows the filter to reach optimum effectiveness without the disturbance of periodic cleaning, avoiding unnecessary loss of bacteria within the filter.
