Has anyone here built a DIY water bottle filter using K1 micro media like this?
Have you had good luck with them? I am thinking about building a few of them myself.

I made one years ago to help control the phosphates. If the air pump is powerful enough they make great filters.

The K1 Micro Media came today. I also ordered some suction cups and filter foam, but that hasn't came yet.

The rest of my parts came so I tried building one with a regular water bottle and I think I need a more rigid bottle. I had a hard time getting the suction cups to stick because the bottle wasn't rigid enough.
