Vortex Diatom Filters
I am in the process of buiding a 55 gallon tank and was considering filtration and I came across the Votrex Diatom Filters. Does anyone have any experience with this filtration system it states it I can remove perasites (ICK). I am looking to have this as a 2nd filter and probabilly go with a tradition hang on filter for the everyday and run this once a week to clean the water and prevent any problems. If anyone has any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

From what I read it can pick up and filter bacteria and even ICK but if the ICK falls to the substrate it mostlikely will not pick it up. But the good think about that filter is that it can trap backteria when filtering so that it gives your tank an impressive clean look.
