What size diatom filter? On another board I frequent someone is selling one that was previously used on a 220 gal tank.

Default hmm

money is the main issue. I only have a 29 gallon tank....The cheapest I see the vortex d-1s for new is around $60 shipped....little more then that...if I can get into on cheaper then that then I would take it.....Im taking a shot in the dark.....Im gonna have to buy one b4 the week is over...if I gotta buy a new one so be it.....I got some green water going on in my new setup up and Im real anal about the clarity of my tank. I spend hours staring at the damn thing.....it keeps me sane....I would prolly use the thing weekly...so its a worthwhile purchase either way....if I can save a few bucks Id love it though...

I have a spare D-1 vortex diatom filter used but still works the only thing missing is the hoses and the ends of them. Has a bag that needs to be cleaned and just like new. Its yours for $30 + shipping. Im out of the discus and angel breeding thing as my health has deteriorated tremendously. I will send it the cheapest way possible if you choose. Let me know.
