I have a azoo hob palm filter in my 3 gal tank. See link below.
It has an adjuster for the flow of the water but even with it at the lowest setting I managed to suck up one of my Red Cherry Shrimp into it.
I red online to put stockings over the intake but what I've found is that it gets clogged with algae.
Oh yea, i have algae in my tank. I don't want to get rid of it because the shrimp and otto eat it and it's free food.
Do you guys have any suggestions on how I can guard the shrimp from the intake and still filter out the free floating algae in the water?
