DIY K1 Moving Media

I have had questions on how my DIY K1 media was done up..

Here is how it was done up.. I try to be as detail as I can:

Here is how the bottom of the DIY bottle is looking like.. There is a mesh to cover the cap to prevent shrimps from being sucked in during the process of bubbling..



The sides of the bottle has been attached with 2 suction cups to hold on the bottle in place as well as a hole at the cap area for the air tube to be attached to.. That will create the bubbles from the base of the bottle..



Lastly, holes are drilled at the base of the bottle (or the top when it's running) so as to release the bubbles.. This will create a upwards current to move the K1 moving media..
(Sorry for the dirty bottle as it was removed from the tank after its prolonged usage.. Hahaha)



Hope this helps all fellow hobbyist..

We in Singapore is quite lucky as this bottle can be purchased from certain LFS.. They are actually produced by a local hobbyist and I shall credit this to him.. He is Jojoe aka Jojoecute who has created this wonderful 'device' for my shrimp tanks as well as for other faunas for aquarium tanks in Singapore..
