Thanks guys. Im gonna grab a sponge this weekend to cover the intake. Any idea how long the fuzz on the DW will last?

I had 6 RCS, one died... They're fun. If only I can get the five that I do have to start making babies.

Shrimp are just too much fun, I think after I establish an RCS colony I'll get yellow neros.

As long as the shrimps don't look like this, you're doing good




But on a serious note, I'd avoid soft prefilter sponges like the Fluval Edge everyone recommends unless you want to clean your prefilter every 3 days because it's killed the water flow from being sucked up or too "filled". I'd get a hard prefilter sponge, the ones that feel like plastic and wouldn't feel good if you rubbed on your skin. Those you can go a long time without cleaning and they won't allow babies in (I have 60 or so CRS that are breeding nicely)
