Try 1/4" hardware screen.  It can be cut and bent easily and if shaped into
an upside-down "U" will fit the skimmer box slotted areas.  Taken a step
further the front of the screen material can be bent outward and then back
to form a pocket between the screen and the slots.  I have used this material
for many years and it has saved many little fish.  If you need alittle more
help email direct.
