I can't use my tetra wisper or my foam filter because they both sucked up some fry while I was testing them. My tank is filthy from the "hikari first bites "

I don't know what to do to get the junk out . I can't use airline tubing because the fry just get sucked out too.
And this stuff is like stick to my tank

I put a ghost shrimp in he is going to town but not making much of a difference.

You could use a gravel vacuum and rubber band a piece of pantyhose to it. You could possibly even cover the sponge filter with some to help protect the babies.

Or you could use your net? That's what I use to stop my fish getting sucked up when they get adventurous
