Ok so I hit a snag

My original idea had the image to conceal the filter intake tube but being I can't make the dual PVC intake work my design is left
With what to do with the intake tube it self

If I make a hole to expose the tube it ruins what I have made it out to be if I make a hole on the side in witch was my first thought of I could expose the risk of sucking up fry but....

then again if I cut out fish net from an old fish scooper I don't use and glue,silicone or epoxy it u guys think it will be safe to keep in there will the net rot??

Send a message via MSN to Pizentios
the net would probably work. I personally use a triangle of filter foam over the end of my intake.

Ok on the corner top ur going to see a pink open area I was thinking of making a deep hole to put fish net that will be held together with great stuff

Now I might do more but seeing I cemented the whole thing might be hard to do now

Ok I went out looking for "great stuff" and I couldn't find it

I didn't want to go to home depot cause it's a bit far and a waste of money for one item

So I went to the local hardware and found this

Now they say it's better then great stuff cause it has no chemicals in it all bio safe

Let me know what you guys think and if this is a good item to use other then great stuff
