I have a 60 gallon "reef-ready" tank I recently set up as a planted tank and added several corys and kuhli loaches to this past weekend. The problem I'm having is that they apparently LOVE to get into the overflow for some reason.
The overflow compartment is too tall and skinny to just net the fish out, so I've been pulling the riser tube to flush them into the sump, and then trying to net them from there, which is also a complete pain to do.
I've tried floss pads, but they choke the flow too much and I'm afraid I'll dry out the sump and overflow the tank. Has anyone ever added some kind of netting to their weir to keep this from happening? Before I resort to anymore redneck engineering, I figured I'd check if anyone else had a solution.
