I would highly recomend a Diatom filter made by Vortex. This filter can be used as a primary filter. I use it to polish water every two weeks. I have never seen a tank this clear. It removes parasites, bacteria and fungus best purchase I have ever made.

I not only polish my water with the one I bought in 1990, I use mine for water changes as well, pumping 50 Gallons at a time for my SW changes. Super fast pumping out and then refilling. One note, it must not be used in SW tanks where a copopod population is essential. The unit will filter/remove phytoplankton and smaller. The filter also can be run with a Diatom powder, Vortex Super Char activated carbon mixture. This mixture will remove any and all living particulates, medications etc from your water, nothing can get past this. Works great as a part of getting rid of Ich as well,
