The only filter you'll ever need! Go from tank to tank, day to day and keep them all virtually free of algae, bacteria, and parasites. It filters aquarium water to an extremely pure state, and eliminates the need to "tear down" your aquariums to clean them. It will filter 100% of the water 100% of the time - no hidden "by-pass holes".

Designed for continuous use, the Diatom Freedom eliminates the need for other filters. A high-speed filter designed for water "polishing", this filter is also portable and versatile. It hangs on the back of the tank or sits on the floor. And it moves without losing siphon so you can go from one tank to another without starting over.
