Some of my fish are getting into my sump.
Some of my fish are getting into my sump. I had some loaches end up in there, but have also had some small fish like neons and endlers wind up in the sump area. I put a screen over the top intake area but I also have a middle intake and a bottom intake area. I blocked off the middle and bottom one so that it only takes water off the top, but that makes the water level a little too high. So, I need a solution to be able to filter the bottom and middle intakes so fish can't get in there. I still want it to look good though. While it's running it would be no problem to keep a small screen on the intakes but when I turn the filters off to feed them I think the screens would fall down or maybe even float.
