I have a related question.  Does anyone have a handy method of keeping fry
and small fish (Ottos and neons mostly) from going overboard though the
"UUUUU" shaped slots in the trickle filter overflow box?  I've tried
netting which is hard to keep in place, and haven't really come up with
anything else that is satisfactory.
