ok I'm slowly phasing out my FX5's on my 150 gal
I took the media in the FX and added it to my sump, the new addition is the K1 Micro. Right now I'm fluidizing it with a power head, and it's flowing nicely, slowly colonizing and dropping, the pic below is 3 days old.
I've done tons of research but no one says it is mandatory to aerate the bed in order to fluidize it, I'm thinking you can use water to fluidized it. one benefit is it is super quiet. and I don't have air lines all over the place.
are there any experts with fluidized beds, do you use air or water to move it.
I mean my system is running efficiently and effectively, but I would like to consult with others.
Numbers don't lie. all my chems are 0
and I do a water change once every 6 months (I have drip system)
