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. Perfect fit - superior quality 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th May 2020

    I bought the 17mm, finer mesh version for my Fluval Aqua Clear 50 HOB filter. I have a 39 gallon tank with 50 fish, 40 of which are new born Mollies. The fit is perfect, and now I don't have to worry about the small Mollies getting sucked into the filter. The quality is excellent and the delivery was very fast.

  2. Best Filter Guard Around 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th May 2020

    I have been using Hans filter guards for a while now, and they have never let me down. Each time I buy a new HOB filter, I always come back to order a new one. I have used these in multiple sizes for different filters, and have never had any issues with them.

  3. Best Mesh 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Nov 2019

    These are very well made, I've bought similar ones before from ebay and such and the rubber part wasn't glued on or it was cut very poorly.

  4. fits perfectly 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Sep 2019

    Ordered this to put on my Fluval canister intake pipe. I have just ordered shrimp for my planter aquarium and wanted a solution to keep the shrimp out. It fits perfectly. Great job great service.

  5. Great quality and fit! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Aug 2019

    22mm model fits great over the JARDLI Metal Lily pipes 16/22mm from amazon!

  6. Great Pre-Filter 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th May 2019

    This is a perfect fit for the Aquaclear 20 filter (17mm)...I replaced the bulky Fluval pre-foam with the larger mesh model in an Edge 6 gallon aquarium, not only does it look so much better but also maintains a strong flow and is super easy to clean when needed. Great workmanship, will be purchasing another for a backup in the near future...

  7. Fits Perfect 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Apr 2019

    Just what I needs to keep my filter from eating my little babies.

  8. Great for protecting my shrimp 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Nov 2018

    Perfect fit and works like a charm.

  9. 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.

  10. 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
