K1 Filter Media
K1 Media provides the maximum active surface area for the bacteria to colonize, more than other types of static media. It is this process which removes harmful ammonia and nitrite from the water. As the K1 Media moves within the filter, it causes the old dead bacteria on the outside to be displaced.
K1 Bio Media is designed to be self-cleaning and to constantly move freely within your filter, requiring little to no maintenance. ... As the bio-media moves around in the filter chamber the bacteria go to work and start removing the ammonia and nitrites.
