Making FX5 intake shrimp friendly???

I thought about putting a mesh bag/sock over it. but that would be so unsightly.

any ideas would be great.


There are 2 types of people on this forum. Those that have algae, and those that lie and say they don't.

If you can find a stainless steel prefilter to fit that pipe diameter, you could go with that. You could also get a block of black filter foam and cut a slot in the middle of it and slide that over your intake.

20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.
