    Please help! I have an intake hose on my filter that is 1/2" inside diameter. I need to find a cage to put on the intake so my ADFs and my tiny betta don't get sucked up! Can anyone tell me what size cage to get?

    can't you just put a sponge around the intake?

    Thanks. I did that but it cuts down on the flow.
    Also, the cage allows me to see better if there is debris clogging the intake.
    Vision these days - not so good.
