    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 am going to order some K1 micro media on ebay.

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

    I have a Tetra Whisper 60 air pump.

    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.

    We went to the store today and I forgot to get a one liter bottle of soda *bangs head*.
