Default (Koi-lo) - more vortex DE filter discussion...

For tanks bigger than 30 gals you probbaly need
an XL. The D1 just takes too long above that size. It'll work to be sure
but how much time (or how many tanks) ya got?

I've just got a single 55 gal tank.

My D1 handles my two 55g tanks without a problem, and I have goldfish in
these tanks. It clears then in under 2 hours with no more than 1/2 to 3/4s
cup of DE from Lowe's (made for pool filters).

Koi-Lo.... frugal ponding since 1995...
