Can I move my fry without the filter sucking them up?

Paigefav

Hello, I have 6 glofish danio babies that have been growing in a breeder net in my 16g tank. They have grown to about half an inch. I have a one gallon tank, the aqueon cube with the hang on the back filter. Right now there is a mystery snail, Betta, and ghost shrimp in there. Would I be able to move my fry into this tank without them getting sucked up by the filter? I will move the Betta of course

They might be ok but if in doubt cover the filter intake with a prefilter made from sponge or some pantyhose.

I am not familiar with that tank and filter, but could you put a sponge on the intake?

Okay thanks! Will they be okay with snail and ghost shrimp?

I don’t have any experience with shrimps but I wouldn’t imagine there would be any problems. Snail should be fine.
