You may want to return the HOB & intake sponge and get a regular air driven sponge filter. New fish fry can still be sucked into the sponge on a HOB. Using an air driven one eliminates any possibility of that happening. I use nothing but air driven filters in all my fry tanks ( and I have a lot of them. )

Hope this helps

Side note, Craigslist might have been a little cheaper.

It's not for newborns. It's for fry over a week. Is it still bad. Even with really really fine sponge. It's fluvall sponge I cut.

Some would say that "It depends on the type of fry" but in my opinion, a HOB filter does not belong in a fry tank. If you want to chance it, go ahead. If you want to totally eliminate the possibility, use an air driven sponge filter. It's really that simple.
