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. So far, so good 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Sep 2017

    Had the filter intakes on for about a week now and it appears to be working great. I have shrimplets in one of the tanks and I caught one of them hanging out on filter eating some goodies, so it definitely works.

    Filters are Eheim 2211 and 2213. Perfect fit.

  2. Custom Sized for my Sunsun 402B, Perfect Fit! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Aug 2017

    Just received my stainless steel filter guard, and it slipped right on nice and snug. Han was very prompt and helpful in responding to my e-mails about getting the correct size (18mm). Shipped fast. Will be recommending to friends!

  3. Penguin 200 perfect fit 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Aug 2017

    Fit perfectly on my penguin 200 and 100. If its too tight to start cut a small slit in one corner of the black sealing material and it will be snug as a bug. Perfect prefilter. I threw my sponge prefilters away. Thanks Han!

  4. SS filter guard 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jul 2017

    Very well made. I have two of them. Saves baby shrimp from being sucked into the filter.

  5. Great 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jun 2017

    My second purchase for this, wanted to get one for another tank to keep my cherries from getting sucked up. These are made really well and work great.

  6. well made 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Jun 2017

    Product is very well made. No sharp edges, true to size and functions well.

  7. Hans' advice was very effective 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2017

    I ordered this to protect the fins of my giant betta. He got stuck against the filter once. I put a sponge along the intake, but it prevented the filter from sucking up the smaller pieces of debris.

    This filter guard was recommended to me on a forum and it has been very effective. I told Hans which type of HOB filter I had and he recommended the size to me. It arrived quickly and fit perfectly. So far the product is doing a good job of allowing my HOB to be effective and my fish's fins have not yet been sucked against the filter again.

  8. stainless steel predicted guard 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th May 2017

    Well made product. And definitely micer looking and less bulky then a prefilter sponge. Excellent customer service.

  9. works as described 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th May 2017

    Really nice fine mesh, would deff work to keep small fry and shrimp from getting sucked in. The 17mm fit perfect on my fluval 206. Only bummer so far is that it does collect alot of debris, I've had it on there for 5 days and already had to rinse it.. but I guess that's the price I pay to save the little ones lol
