Powerhead Question...

Curious what people use to restrict the powerful suction from the intake of there powerheads. Looking for something that will stop the powerheads from sucking up fish and inverts. I currently use foam which gets plugged up in a hurry and as a result I rarely take advantage of the true potential of the pump all the time.

Any good ideas?

I use Hydor Korilias for water movement. I have had snails and urchins crawl over them and not get stuck.....
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....
