I am going to get a breeding tank soon and i wanted to know what type of filter won't suck in any of the fry

i also wanted to know if puting a sponge on the end of the tube on a normal filter will help

In that case you either need a quite big sponge filter, or you could use a couple smaller ones. Will the tank be bare-bottomed? What fish are you going to breed?

Ok, then a sponge filter(s) will be fine. They don't really do mechanical filtration but that is fine since it will be easy to suck up the junk off the bare bottom when you do water changes. Here is where I think I will order my sponge filter for a q tank, and if you can't find them at stores you may want to check these out (though I don't know where you live, and I don't know if they ship outside the Us...)

They absolutely do do mechanical filtration. Might I recommend as I do everywhere the tetra brillant filter. I have used this sponge filter to raise baby, African cichlids and discus just to name a couple (i used to have 10 tanks and breed as much as I could). Anyway this filter will not let you down! Just keep it running always in your stock tank and when you have fry or preparing for, switch it over to you fry tank and your set. Anyway I recently purchased two because I started keeping fish again after a considerable haiatus. They have been running around four weeks and when needed are ready to go.

This is what I use in one of my 20G breeder tanks.

This is similar to what is in the other 20G breeder tank. But not as big
