Safe Baby Shrimp


I have a Marina Hang-On Breeding Box with a Hagen Elite Underwater Mini Filter attached to the intake tube. I packed the inside of the filter with two of the foam inserts that come with it. Will that be enough to keep baby shrimp from getting sucked up? I also have the filter set at its lowest setting. The parts are below for reference.

Don't think your images showed up.

But I can tell you that yes, it will pervent shrimps from getting through, so long as the spaces in the foam are not bigger than 1-2mm (which is the average size for a newborn shrimplet)

It normally only has one insert, but I shoved another one in there so hopefully that will be okay.
