Penny, I've never used a Magnum micron cartridge, but I can't say enough 
good things about my diatom filter when it comes to cleaning up the mess 
following a heavy round of tank maintenance.  It polishes water 
beautifully.  It is back-flushable, so the filter itself can be cleaned out 
easily too.  I've had mine for over two years now, and I've not had any 
problems with it.  YMMV, of course.

If I'm not mistaken, this subject popped-up on the list not too long 
ago.  Maybe you can find some opinions in the APD archives as well.
