I'm tired of my sponge prefilters getting clogged on all of my Mignon 60s and I want to move to some mesh intake screens, but I haven't been able to find one that fits the diameter of the intake (they're all either just a bit too big or too small and I haven't been successful trimming the too-small ones to fit.) Does anyone have a suggestion for one that would fit?

I have the same filter on a 7g, and bought this off amazon some months back.

Ailinda 12mm/16mm Aquarium Inflow Inlet Filter Stainless Steel Fish Shrimp Mesh Net Filter Guard,Fish Tank Intake Strainer Pre-Filter Cover

The 12mm will fit, just take off the end of the intake, and slip this on. The fit is tight, but secure.

Ah, this is a good idea. I was trying to fit on the ones I have over the bottom segment of the filter and didn't even try taking that segment off. Thanks for the tip!
