you can, but i think you need to tie up some sponge wrapped around the intake with string. so they dont get sucked up.
what are they? congratulations!!
how were they being raised before? in a breeder box or...?xx

why not use a cheap filter pad? they come in wide thin strips, which is ideal.

i dont use that kind of thing because i have my babies (guppies) in a breeder box til they are ready for the main tank. when the babies get a bit cramped in the box i divide the batch or use a load as feeders for the oscars x

what colour fancy guppy? i have just had a batch each of flame-tail and neon blue fancy guppy fry mature into their colours, some are well pretty. and there is a random anomoly colour male fry from the flame-tail that i have no idea what it would class as :L

and how many have u got? i love little babies!! xxx

You can add a sponge on the intake tube of a regular HOB filter or simply use a sponge filter since fry don't have a huge bioload.
