Fluval 5g spec intake protection

Currently im using a piece of marineland filterpad wedged into the lower intake and a piece to cover the inside of the upper grated intake. How do other people safeguard their shrimplets and fry from becoming filter dwellers?

On my Fluval I'm currently using sponge, but before Thant I just tied a nylon over the intake with an elastic band.

Its a great corner of a room tank. The tank has great potential. I leave the top off for a nice clean rim less look that it has.

Your set up looks good as long as the filter can still run properly

In the spec there is a mystery snail, bn pleco, and just under one million rcs. If anyone lives near seattle and wants some rcs, come and get them.
The edge houses 2 assassin snails and one hybrid mbuna. Its the offspring from my other tank. Hes the lone survivor and im kinda attached to the little fella now.
Eventually id like to put some shellies in there.

Pretty cool! I'm trying to get my shrimpies to get their groove on. They were getting up there but I think a neon got the shrimp babies.
