great info and I just wanted to know if anyone came out with a way to cover up the elite pump so it doesn't suck up babies? doesn't seem like any one did, if so can I see some pics.

I will be getting one of these soon and want to know which is the best way to go

I've never lost any shrimp using one but you could stretch some black stockings/pantyhose around the filter or even use a fine filter media bag.

In bottom compartment of the elite micro pump there is a place for sponge prefilter. You can replace original one with finer one. I'm using original and don’t have any problem so far.I don't have picture right now.

Nice. I was going to do that one mine. Ripped my $5 fountain apart, got the pump out, put it together and then read on the fountain do not not run for more than 3 hours at a time. That put a stop to my plans.
