I am in the process of setting up a large aquarium ( 6 feet x 20 inches x 20 inches ). I am considering a Vortex diatom filter but as i asked around everyone says that they are not meant to be used as a permanent filter ; only for cloudy water. I want to use it because I get ick alot and these filters actually get rid of ick. My only concern is that I also read somewhere that they clean out micro particles and friendly bacteria that bottom feeders rely on. Is to clean to good ? Anyone have used diatom filters with clown loaches for a long time with no problem ?
