Guppy fry...

I have several pregnant guppies right now, and I have a pretty strong filter... I have heard of putting a nylon over the filter. Does that work? If so, how would you put it on?I don't want the fry to get sucked up! D: any advice is appreciated! Thanks!
Melanie

Hi, just get some BRAND NEW tights(pantyhose) and cut a section off. I use the ankle. Put of the filter and use an elastic band to secure... What type of filter do you have??

A pic of your filter would be good...my guppy is currently having her fry and I had to use the toe part of a knee high stocking with a rubber band

Just cut the ankle part off. Slip it on the pipe, like a sock and put an elastic on it to secure it. It's best to use new, no nasty's to worry about. A really cheap pair will do the job...
