Assemble the Vortex Diatom® Filter without adding the SR Diatom Filter Powder.  Put the intake & exhaust tubes of the filter into the aquarium and prime the unit by creating suction on the exhaust tube.  Let the filter fill until the air is forced out of the intake hose.  Hold the exhaust tubes above the aquarium until the filter completely fills with water.  Submerge a plastic bag or plastic container in the aquarium and fill with water.  Put the intake and exhaust tubes into the container, isolating the container from the aquarium,.  Add the Diatom Powder directly into the container while the filter continues to run.  When the powder has been absorbed into the filter and the water in the container is running clear, take away the plastic bag or plastic container and use the filter to clarify your aquarium.
