Is it possible to get diatom filtering using a canister filter? I was thinking about getting Seachem's "The Bag" welded filter bag, adding some diatom powder to it and dropping it into my Fluval.

Anyone ever done this? Thanks in advance.

Whoa time out guys....let me get this straight!:rolleyes:

I assumed you needed the bag to contain the DE powder. Seems I wrong on that account?

So what you are saying is to just feed the powder into the intake? Wont it just get sucked through the filter and back out again? When you say "find a home" are you saying that eventually, from continuously been sucked into and blown out of the filter the DE power will find nooks and crannies inside my other filter material to lodge itself there?
