Neon Tetras being trapped in filter tube
I have recently put 5 neon tetras in an Eclipse 3 system and all were doing well until I discovered last night that 2 of them had become trapped on the intake tube slats. How do I prevent this from happening in the future? I have put a small mesh filter bag over the tube for now. Any suggestions appreciated!
