Hey, this is kind of a stupid question because it doesn't really seem possible to me, but is there a way I can put a "shield" of sorts around my filter intake that will still make it effective but prevent fish from getting caught there? I have a 55 gal
with a 350 gph
filter currently, and a lot of smaller type fish. I have had it cycled and running for a couple months. Yesterday, I lost a little guppie because he got sucked up to the intake and got stuck there and couldn't move. It was too late when I got home from work to save him. Anyways, I was wondering if there is a way I could put some sort of guard on there or a trick so I can prevent this from happening a lot. It was the first time it happened but I could see it happening a lot more because most of my fish are little guys and at the most might get a couple inches, and are very inquisitive. LOL, and by "trick" I don't mean buy bigger fish.
