Created by award winning pond and aquarium manufacturers Evolution Aqua, this fantastic new filter media is called K1 Micro and it is specifically designed for use in bead filters, conventional pond filters and aquarium filters.
K1 Micro Media is the smaller version of Evolution Aqua’s incredibly successful K1 Media, the market leading filter media in aquaculture filtration. K1 Micro shares the same wheel shaped design as K1 Media, but the Micro version is manufactured to smaller size increasing the surface area to 950m2 per metre3.
This wheel shaped design creates the most effective surface for the nitrification process to take place, reducing your ammonia levels and leaving you with a better chemical balance in your water. As your K1 Micro media begins to mature, nitrifying bacteria colonises the “quiet areas” of each unit of this media, optimising the amount of bacteria in your filter

- Improved solids handling – packed tightly together with areas for solid particles and fines to be captured leading to improved mechanical filtration.
- Increased flow rate
- Reduced back pressure
- Improved cleaning – Leaves more of your bio film intact.
- Semi buoyant media
