Just take a piece of filter sponge, cut a hole in it, and slip it over the intake tube. The nylon works also, though, or some filter floss wrapped around and secured with a rubber band.
I prefer the sponge method though because it doesn't clog as easily and is simple to pull off and rinse when needed. As far as temps go, they will be fine at regular tropical temps, upper 70s.
