ADA Lily Pipe Mini V-1 and RCS


For now, I have a sponge on the intake of my pipe. It seriously defeats the whole purpose of having lily pipes. I'd order a stainless steel mesh but the pipe sits right against the glass so I'm not sure if it'll fit well. I've read through one post that the slits on this pipe is thin enough to prevent shrimp from being sucked in? Can anyone confirm this?

Best picture I have:

You still need the prefilter. Babies can get sucked in and even adults can get stuck to them. First hand experience.

you can tie a white panty hose or something to it. it might not be as effective as a sponge but it might be cleaner looking.

stockings or a course media bag ziptied then trimmed at the top seems to work for me.
