    Shintaro's New Filter System

    Just Heard that Shintaro Koi have just had a Nexus Easy fitted to one of their ponds. Looking forward to hearing a breeders feedback on the Nexus system.

    I was amazed to hear the news.

    Cheers John

    Not exactly... we can "see" the snow every winter up on the mountains just north of our shop

    The Eazy serves as both a mechanical and biological filter right? Is this the only form of filtration used on this pond?

    EAzy is the container of the static K1 in a Nexus inner chamber The slight vortex action inside this chamber plust the EAzy's static K1y act as the Nexus pirmarly mechanical stage. Of course some bioconversion also happens there as bacteria do colonize the static K1.

    The next chamber is the outter fluid bed where the K1 roll and tumble in the currents caused by the rising bubbles.

    The last chamber is the exit port were statoc K1 can capture debris coming from the previous chambers.

    for Nexus details see www.evolutionaqua.com
