The Evolution Aqua K1 Micro Media Moving Bed process, which has been scientifically tried and tested in fish farming and waste water treatment for over 10 years, is now available for fish keepers and is exclusively distributed worldwide by Evolution Aqua. The media is engineered in a wheel shape and has a slight positive buoyancy. This allows a small amount of water flow to circulate the media throughout the vessel. This flow is created with your air pump and air stones or diffuser etc.

How Evolution Aqua K1 Micro Media works
Maturing the Evolution Aqua K1 micro bio-media is important because a delicate eco-system is naturally developing for the bacteria involved in the nitrification process. Evolution Aqua K1 Micro Media provides the maximum active surface area for the bacteria to colonise, more than other types of static media. It is this process which removes harmful ammonia and nitrite from the water.

How is Evolution Aqua K1 Micro Media different to other media
As the Evolution Aqua K1 Micro 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 colonise. Within the wheel is a protected surface which enables colonies of bacteria to naturally follow their life cycle, of maturing, dying and then fuelling the latter stages of the nitrification cycle. K1 micro media has been designed to provide the best possible habitat for both young and mature beneficial bacterial colonies.

Evolution Aqua K1 vs K1 Micro Media
K1 Micro Media has all the same physical characteristics as the original K1 Media but in a smaller size, not only does this make the Micro version more suitable for smaller filter, bead filter and aquarium filter it also increases the surface area of the media to 1400m² per m³ with a protected surface area of 950m² per m³

What is meant by - self cleaning
Unlike foam, matting, or other forms of static filtration media, the Evolution Aqua K1 Micro 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.
