Can I run the Ziss Bio filter with water?


Recommended Posts

Could you do it. Yes, but it would take some serious adapting. You can buy premade K1 reactors that are made for that specific purpose for probably less than it would cost you to buy and adapt a Ziss filter. You only tend to see reactors marketed to the marine hobbyists, but they can also be used in freshwater. The issue with the K1 type media is it's most efficient in highly oxygenated water. Even in the very high-end koi filters like the Nexus line they inject air to optimize the K1 type media. The K1 type media can sometimes more clump together than remain fluidized in just a pure water stream also. That tumbling and bouncing around helps to keep the media clean and functioning at a high level.
