Iguess the answer is yes!Diatomaceous earth is a silt sand commonly used in pool 
filters in theSouthwest.  Silt meaning very very very very very fine.  How in 
the worlddid you get from Seweryns post to lambasting every person who 
triedsomething a little strange?This avocation is a process of trial and error and 
learning from themistakes and the successes.  I have always wondered if you have a 
plantedaquaria or just make stuff up as you go along.A diatom filter (which 
you have never used and I have) references the sizeof particle that is 
filtered.Personally I would like to see this post go forward and hear others andtheir 
observations and ideas.Is it possible that you would just shut up long enough 
for others to thinkreason and resolve?  I hope and pray so.Sharon

I have followed this complete thread and didn't find a single sarcastic, 
butt-headed, or otherwise offensive comment made by our esteemable Mr. Heiber. 
Scott is one of the APD's more prolific, eloquent posters, and he is usually dead 
on with his experience and/or advice. I suggest you re-read his posts before 
YOU make offensive comments to him. Perhaps you took something he said the 
wrong way. Whatever the case, name calling helps no one.

Diatomaceous earth would not work in a 2213, and IME Scott's suggestions 
regarding the 2213 would be the only way the only way to get any fine particulate 
filtration out of that unit. I own one. A Vortex or Magnum charged with DE 
would be the way to go, although I have a HOT magnum and 99% of the time the 
Micron Cartridge alone works very well for fine particulate filtration.

My favorite way of dealing with cloudy water from algae blooms is my handy 15 
watt in line UV sterilizer. No drugs and it works well.
