I've never heard of this type of filter. I looked around for a few minutes and came up with a few basic questions that even Vortex's site didn't seem to have the answers to...
1) Any attachments to make it HOB
2) If it is not HOB
, do you have it actually in
your sump or just run the intake and output to and from the sump and have the actual diatom filter sit outside?
3) Does it have an internal pump, or do you have to have an external pump creating the throughput?
These things sound pretty interesting. I'm seriously considering asking for one for a Christmas present already, and I just heard of it. :p
