I wouldn't suggest doing either. But using a diatom filter that filters to 1 micron would be better IMO. Dinos are generally 10 microns and bigger.

In the past I'll doing a periodic typhoon in the tank and use a vortex diatom xl filter ala PaulB. This has probably been a factor in keeping the diatom population unnoticed in my tank.

Evaporation is a much slower process and not nearly as violent as boiling creating steam. But risk is possible.
