Product Description

Protect your shrimp and fish fry!
The mesh holes are large enough to prevent them from clogging easily, however they are small enough to protect fry and shrimp.
Specs :
SS - T-316 Stainless steel wire mesh (higher level of corrosion resistance than that offered by T-304 Stainless Steel Wire Mesh)
Don't buy inferior product that uses 304 SS mesh
Rubber - Marine grade tubing (won't deteriorate over time)
Don't buy inferior product that has regular tubing and will break down
Seams - Seams are folded into each other which takes a bit of time to get perfect. Folding the seam won't letting anything get sucked through the seam part
Don't buy inferior product that have the seams just lay on each other
Mesh Hole Size:
Original - smaller mesh meant for fry and shrimp tanks
New - larger mesh meant for catching small debris (add $1 to all prices for this mesh)
Remember they are all handmade and take time to make but also can’t be all completely 100% exactly the same as pictured above. I will try my best to get them all to look the same.
Also please rinse them again in HOT water before using. I've already rinsed them once.
Sizes you pick/order is on you, I will test fit everyone I sell before shipping on the correct mm sizing tubes.

  1. fits perfectly! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Apr 2017

    I'm going to be putting these on all of my tanks, now that I see how well made these are.

  2. great fit 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Feb 2017

    Fit on my glass lily pipe with no issue. Wish there was a gap between the screen and the lily pipe. Seem water is only pulled through one side. Overall a great product that protects your baby shrimp.

  3. Exactly what I was looking for 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Feb 2017

    Needed something to keep the shrimplets out of my filter, and these are perfect. 17mm is the perfect size for a Fluval 406 intake tube, just as was recommended in the description.

  4. Perfect fitment 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jan 2017

    Super fast shipping. Product fitment was perfect and of high quality. Add in super fair price and this is a great product. Thank you Han.

  5. Great product and customer service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Dec 2016

    As others have mentioned, this is a really well made product. Han was very helpful in working with me to fit an odd sized filter intake. The cover looks great and works beautifully. Thank you, Han!

  6. Best shrimp guard. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Dec 2016

    After trying similar products, I will say this the the best quality. This is my second time buying them. The fit is perfect on all five I purchased from here.

  7. excellent quality & service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Dec 2016

    SS guard is perfect. I ordered several in different sizes, all custom. Han was easy to work with and patient with my sizing requirements. They all look very nice, fit great and are sturdy. It will definitely protect baby shrimp, and doesn't seem to affect flow as quickly as a sponge, easier to clean too! They dont look home made... actually look sleeker than a sponge or a normal siphon intake on my plumbed fluval f-15. I will be ordering 2 more for my fluval edge. So much better than the alternatives.

  8. Wonderful product! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Nov 2016

    This filter guard works amazingly! I bought the wrong size the first time but I explained my problem and Han's replaced them with no problem. If you do buy the product without knowing the size of the intake tube, measure it and add 2-3 extra mm. The finer mesh works great with having smaller fish babies.

  9. 10 inch tall custom for Aquavas stainless steel pipe 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Nov 2016

    Works perfectly, could not have asked for a better fit. Thanks again Han for the quality products and the best customer service.

  10. Well made, quality materials 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Oct 2016

    I bought 2 SS mesh guards to replace my sponge pre-filters. The Fluval sponges were too fine and didn't let any particles in my filters. I could have replaced it with coarser sponges, but prefer the thinner SS mesh. The seller said the larger mesh is ok with juvenile shrimp. From what I've seen, it works fine with my RCS. Great quality product!
