    Bakki Shower Advice

    Good morning

    I want to install a four tier Bakki shower I am going for the Evolve 1000mm long version can anyone tell me how much media it will require and will it need to go in each tier. I know the Momontaro is the best but what is the best alternatives.

    Many thanks

    A shower I had on a pond I had 5/6 years ago had the small bits of grog in it so it was in onion bags but that was great.

    At the moment I'm running grog ,crystal bio and midori csm

    Grog is great in a shower but use the big stuff.
    I made the mistake and ordered some small and boy it is small and needs to go in a mesh sack.

    I’ve got 70kg of bakki house media, looking to increase that this year.
    i would like to add another shower but it’s quite a big out lay, not sure it will happen this year.

    Bought a 4 tier 1500 long Shower from Ian, he advised that'll probably take around 40 to 50 kg's of BHM.
