You didn't address my core concern.  Do you have keep cultivate aquatic

As commonly used, "Diatom Filter" means a filter designed
specifically for the use of diatomaceous media, which

several years, two models of Vortex and a System One. I
have also used Eheims, among others, for over 30 something
