Re: [APD] Green Water

One thing that worked well for me in a new tank was a diatomaceous filter. 
It filters out on micron level and after 2-3 one hour runs the problem was 
gone. Not to mention the water is crystal clear when you run it. I used 
Vortex brand of diatom filter. And no - you cannot put the diatomaceous 
earth into regular filter of any kind - it is too fine and will ruin 

Hope it helps.
