I had two females that had fry about a week apart. I figured I had about 40 total. As I watched my babies grow there didn’t seem to be as many and I thought maybe they just died. Tonight I broke down my filters and there was about 15 of my missing babies. They were small because they were surviving in about 1/4 inch at bottom of filter, but swimming like little troopers. I was shocked, so I will now forever check the filters.

This is why most people put a sponge over their filter intake when dealing with fry. It's cool they were still alive though.

hehe. Ok, I see from your other thread that you've got the Aqua Clear Fluval HOB.

You might be able to use something like this:

(others might know of a specific one for your size Hob).

But check the size of your intake pipe, and the size of the sponge.

You could probably even take a spare sponge that goes in the actual Aquaclear filter, cut a slit in it, and put over your intake. I've also stretched a piece of pantyhose over intakes before to protect fish.
