    Don't own one but I use a coarse sponge around the inlet to prevent the babies getting sucked in and the shrimp love the extra grazing spot

    Intake covers are essential for any filter apart from sponges

    I have one, and unfortunately the intake is very wide, which makes using a standard sponge from a sponge filter impossible.
    You could buy some sponge and modify it yourself to fit, however.
    It is a fantastic filter.
