Fluval SpecV filter chamber vs. OEBT shrimp
Self-confessed nano-newb here....I currently have a SpecV set up planted, Finnex LED light with a handful of OEBT & cherry red shrimp. I'm running the factory filter on it and am having issues with the shrimp getting into the filter chamber that sits below the filtration media. I've tried using craft plastic mesh to set up a moss wall (shrimp got between the mesh & the wall of the tank), have tried adjusting the height of the filter sponge and placing the plastic mesh inside the sponge chamber (between the sponge and the wall). I think they're climbing into the smaller chamber where the actual filter motor sits. Should I just use the mesh to "cage" the top of that chamber? I had trouble with the filter chambers not fully filling with water when I've put anything in front of the intakes. Suggestions??
