I dont have anyone who wears a pantyose in my house or uses it so i have found another solution to it. i have found a similar kind of a plaster type cloth material which is not as stretchy as the pantyhose or the tights worn by women but i am sure it will work out well for me. Thanks to all.

If you have "dollar stores" where you live, you can pick up a super cheap pair of pantyhose or stockings there if you find your fabric doesn't work.

Also, if you want to save the fry it's best not to leave them in with the adults. They have many net or box breeders that float/hang on the side of your tank, that you could buy. Put the fry in one of those! And you won't have to worry about the filter.

By the time i have fries i think i might buy a small tank and shift the adults in that one so i will have one complete big tank for them. Till now the plaster fabric has been good for me. Thanks for your advice.
