Hi there, I just had a thought... doesn't happen very often! Lol, I am keeping platys and guppies for the first time (the tanks I lost in the fire had no live bearers) and I was wondering if my fish breed, and we are talking guppies here so I should say - WHEN my fish breed, how do I stop the fry being sucked into my filter? It does have a tube grid on it, but the gaps would be large enough for fry to get sucked in, and even though I am not separating them and most will get eaten, I would preffer them not to get mangled in the filter, I would much ratherthat the ones that wont make were gone in a gulp rather then being traumatized in the filter. Can I wrap a the toe off a pair of tights round the tube - will this still allow enough filtration and not bugger my filter?
