Out of curiosity anyone ever use these? From what I've been reading, not only do they remove the smallest of particulate matter, but they claim they can filter out parasites as small as the ICH parasite. Whether or not this is true, I just dont see it as being very practical since my understanding is you cant run them full time since they tend to clog real quick. It also looks very messy to use and since I have no experience with them I would like to know more.
