It's annoying enough that I'm considering removing it and looking for other options.
I got a mesh screen tube for exactly that reason.

It's a bad day when you think your Platy is going to give birth to what looks like lots and overnight she dies due to a block backside. Our day goes on with a heavy head🤢

Hmm... I do have an unopened Rena XP2 in the garage...
