Well, a hole punch could to water flow...aquarium safe, probably...floating, put baked polymer clay on the bottom of it! How's that sound? I know the clay is aquarium safe ^^

Hole punch would make holes big enough for fry to swim through.

So that the corners of the squares of one sheet are in the middle of the squares on the other. Put the plastic thing over both sheets together. Bury the bottom in the gravel and make sure the sides are braced well on the walls of the tank.
That's exactly what I posted a link to. :/

use a very fine mesh mate, see my post above. it's cheap and will circulate water and can be fine enough so that fry won't swim through. I think 3 others posted something similar too

I think I might use that stitching stuff and put pantyhose on it to keep the fry in good circulation and keeping them from the other fish! Sound good? ^^

I was reading that layers of pantyhose over a filter can keep the guppies from being sucked up yesterday, and today I was thinking about that when I was reading the update on this thread, ideas were sparked! I think I might use two or three layers of them on the divider, instead of doubling it up ^^ and then the foam on the sides to keep it from moving! (if it's safe) ^^

One layer of each should be fine, you want good water flow.
