What filter do you use?

I don't think it would do harm on the livebearer fry but it will be a different story for fry of egg-layers especially when they are kept in pits dug by their parents. As the livebearer fry are pretty much well-developed, the chances of them being sucked by UG filter may not be high.

ok. i have 2 filters in there right now for my 2 fat and small goldfish that ill soon be moving to a 30 gal. but there just little filters that came in a kit. i think ones an aqua tech 5-15 and the others a some kind of brand 10-20.

place an aqua clear 30 sponge over ur filter intakes. dig out a lil hole in the sponge for the pipe to fit in, being careful not to tear through to the outside.
