Ziss Bubble Bio Moving Bed Filter

Finally someone has made a moving bed filter that runs off of air and fits into our aquariums! We don't have to try and DIY them anymore. These units are great because they come with an easy to remove intake sponge and the media starts moving from day one. Unlike k1 media where it can take days to weeks for it to start moving. Taking out all the guess work and making it simple hook up to an air pump and getting all the benefits of oxygen in the water and a super charged bio filter.

If you've never seen this before, they're so great because they constantly rub against each other and cleaning the medium as well as only letting the strongest bacteria survive. With oxygen traveling through, the oxygen rich water combined with strong bacteria handle large amounts of ammonia in comparison to other types of filters.

We feel this filter is best suited for 20 gallon and larger aquariums. One Ziss Bubble Bio can handle up to 40 gallons by itself. Best combined with a sponge filter or hang on back as this will handle your biological load in the aquarium and some mechanical, but if you want crystal clear water you'll want to add a mechanical filter like a sponge filter or hang on back to the mix.

Very impressed

So far I’m really impressed with the way the filter works, seems to be keeping the media clean, nitrate are already lower (20ppm)

Great bio filter, works great !!!

Purchased an initial unit to try it out and it was extremely efficient in reducing my nitrites in my 55 gallon tank. Upon those results, I purchased two additional units which have made all the difference in stabilizing my other aquariums. I think they are an effective and inexpensive way to maintain your aquarium water quality without an expensive equipment upgrade. Worth every penny.

As awsome as expected!

Took about two days to fully fluidize but it is working like a champ! Put it in my 20 gallon long just tilted to the side a little and it works great as a filter and something to add interest/water movement. Still testing its bio capacity but I have high hopes once it gets properly colonized with bacteria. If you enjoy the microbiology of aquariums you will love this filter

Ziss filter

Seems to be an excellent filter! Easy set up and began to work well within the first 24 hours. I'm glad I bought two of them!

Decent little filter

It took a few days before the media would swirl around. It does make a noticeable bubbling sound, so keep that in mind if like a quiet aquarium. Not sure if it adds anymore benefit apart from a sponge filter, but it’s different and cool to look at.
