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.

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.
