You best option would be to replace the powerhead with something more appropriate and designed for the types of animals you will be keeping. Maxi-jets are a good choice and come with a strainer attachment.
i have been on the hunt for a new one.the lfs
doesnt have any and i looked at aquatic critters and they are a bit over priced.ended up having to buy a cheapo at wal-mart for the 55 gal
.it's really not too bad but nowhere near as good as the one i have in the 75gal. btw
wen my husand bought that he used it for an under gravel filter for fw
. and for the record i hate them fw
.that was the nastiest mess when tearing down the tank yuck!
thanks for your help,
