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. Great for protecting my shrimp fry from my Aqua Clear 110 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jul 2018

    I resorted to using the foam 'pre filters' that go over the Aqua Clear inlet tube, but I found these after a while always got gunked up by bacteria and developed a film which showed the flow, cleaning of these sponges became less and less of a solution over time.

    I read some positive reviews on people using this product on their filters and thought I'd give it a try.
    The flow for my filter with this has not been impeded and has been rather quick and easy to clean if needed.
    I have not seen the same issue where a film develops over time like I have using sponges either.

    So far these have been the best solution I have come across and would highly recommend them.


  2. Low Profile 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Feb 2018

    This is a low profile alternative to a spounge on the intake of my fluval 206 canister only negative if you don’t keep it clean flow can be slowed but it’s a quick fix and way more aesthetically pleasing


  3. Great Stainless steel prefilter! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Dec 2017

    Han provides fast and great Customer Service and troubleshooting! The stainless steel filter fits great into my intake tube, and I just needed to heat the rubber a bot to make it an extremely snug fit! I'm still using the dry start method so I can't tell if it'll keep 100% of the shrimplettes out of the filter but I will know by 7 months or so from now. It certainly looks like it'll keep small shrimp safe.


  4. Perfect Cover 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Dec 2017

    Slid on easy, and is strong. Much stronger than I expected. Was a perfect fit for my intake. This is much better than cleaning a sponge every other day. The water flow for my filter is great, once again.


  5. Excellent quality 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Nov 2017

    Very happy with this product. Fit like a glove.


  6. Exceptional for raising fry 5 Star Review

    I have 2 , great for protecting my fry from pump and filter.


  7. Exactly as described 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Nov 2017

    Great small mesh for shrimp fry! Exactly as described, makes a lovely filter head. =)


  8. Perfect for shrimp/fry 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Oct 2017

    We one of these guards on all 3 tanks... great for keeping shrimp and fry out of the filter!


  9. Great for Shrimp 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Sep 2017

    Especially if you have baby shrimp. They can eat around it safely without getting sucked in.


  10. Screen fit perfectly 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Sep 2017

    I bought this to fit my AquaClear 20. At first I was being too delicate, but with a bit of pressure, it slipped on like a perfectly fit glove. The water flow to the filter is now perfect. The old sponge filter was going soft and would not rinse out properly anymore.
