kalndes k1 micro

K1 media has been used by Evolution kaldnes k1 mediaAqua in Koi filtration systems for a number of years. This new type of filter media, K1 Micro, contains all of the benefits of traditional K1 media but is extruded in a much smaller form. The small wheel shaped filter media pieces provide a significantly increased protected surface area per cubic meter when compared to standard K1 for bacteria to colonize. This makes K1 Micro an ideal filter media for aquariums of all types where high level biological filtration is needed. K1 Micro can also be used to replace existing filter media

Vandermeer Nursery Turtle Sanctuary

Please Note that our Sanctuary has a limited capacity. Please call for space availability before bringing a turtle to our location.

Located in our Water Garden and Fisheries Department visitors will find our turtle habitat. Since about 2006, Vandermeer Nursery has welcomed many pet turtles in need of a place to live.

We only accept turtles that are available through the pet trade, such as Red Ear Sliders, Yellow-bellied Sliders, and Cooters.

We offer a temporary home for these reptiles in need who may be neglected, mistreated or are otherwise unwanted. Our end goal is finding appropriate new “forever” homes for these turtles.

Many non-native turtles from the pet trade are released into our natural ecosystems by owners who no longer wish to care for them. This is not only ILLEGAL, this endangers our native species of turtles. So if you, or someone you know, is not longer able to care for their pet turtle call our store, (905) 427-2525, and ask for the POND Department to arrange a drop off appointment.

Our Turtle Sanctuary offers our staff an opportunity to:
- create awareness to the public about Non-Native vs Native turtle species
- promote responsible pet ownership practices
- and educate proper husbandry and maintenance practices for these wonderful reptiles.
