Thanks for the info. I have a small powerhead in my shrimp tank, and I use various bits of filter or cloth over the intake with a rubber band to hold. I wanted to use a circulation pump, but like I posted, I thought the prop would be a death trap. It certainly looks more elegant than what I'm using now.
