    Wow, so sorry about the Rasboras...I had to go back and read what filter you were using...I have an AC30 on my 10 gallon, and modified the pick up tube a bit because it was sucking up my shrimp...I cut the slotted end off, put a cork in the open end, and drilled a bunch of small holes in the tube for water to flow through...works just fine...also, I keep the water flow turned down to about 50%, and it is still more than adequate flow

    I did this after trying the nylon stocking trick, because the stocking got clogged up after only a few days with debris and mulm

    Tank looks great, fishies will get used to their new home in no time...be sure to keep checking your water daily for awhile...congrats, you've done a great job!

    Thanks Slap. I feel really bad for the little guys, that I didn't think of the possibility. I figured they'd know better once they started feeling a pulling and swim away but I guess small fish means really small brains huh? The kids (8 and 10) were pretty sad. I'm not crazy about the stocking over the intake either (it's ugly), so I'm going to check and see if they have an alternative at the store. If not I might do something along the lines of what you've done.

    I've already been obsessively checking the water. I was worried because I figured only sick fish will get sucked up in the tube as healthy ones would know better, but since it was 3 in such a short time it must have just been their size. Params have remained perfect.

    Hey, with this hobby you live and you learn...we ALL will suffer some fish loss at one time or another, regardless of how well we try to protect and care for them...

    I will try to find the pic of the DIY I did to the filter tube and post it here....and do keep an eye on that nylon for dirt build-up, and keep an eye on your water flow if it does start to get clogged

    Here it is...not pretty, but effective so far...Be careful drilling the holes, the tube will try to roll around...I trapped it between 2 pieces of wood, with a piece of wood underneath, to prevent this

    You could make the holes even smaller if you want...there will be bits of plastic clinging to the holes you make, a piece of sandpaper or a file will take them right off

    Fluval makes a prefilter sponge for pretty cheap. I picked one up because I was worried about my betta getting his fins caught in the strainer for my filter. :) It's black, so it's not an eyesore in the tank.

    Here you go. These work OK as long as the filter is not too strong. I've found on my AC50, it will tend to "hourglass" in after a while, but it is great on the AC20. The sponge is finer, softer than it should be. I use a larger coarser sponge prefilter on the AC50 in a larger tank but it would be too large in a 10 gallon. Like this: http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...m?pcatid=21426

    You can also just take one of the AC20 sponge replacements and cut a hole through the end into the middle of the sponge and use that. This isn't pretty, but very effective.
