Oooh thanks, I need all the tips I can get with this guy, I just ordered him and I'm already worrying about how high maintenance he's gonna be.
I actually have an Azoo Palm on order... it's rated up to 5 gallons and makes barely any flow, not to mention it looks way better, so I'm probably going to use that. With clear fishing line wrapped around the intake many times for good measure. I do that on all my Azoos, it keeps shrimp out pretty well and you can't tell it's there.
I also ordered a bunch of fissidens so I'm gonna moss the driftwood up to make it even softer for the guy to rest on. He's not the greatest swimmer from the video I saw.
