This is what I rigged up so whrn I go and get another wrasse he or she won't end up lime that one.

I covered it with eggrate and cut a thick mil. rectangle of plastic off a container. Superglued it to the eggcrate right were it sits over the overflow box. I can take pics when i get back in town. Heres pics of cover and overflow box. I realize eggcrate isnt the best choice for small fish but it stopped my mccoskers, sixline, and dottyback.



I have the eggcrate cut into 3 pieces so i can just take the front panels off and overflow stays covered.
