View Full Version : HELP! How do I stop fish from getting into the overflow???

I have had a couple of yellow gobies and even firefish get sucked in, go thru the tube and into the back of the overflow box. Will some kind of mesh top work? How and what material to use? This only happens with new fish. Oh yeh, I even had a turbo start his way into the U tube. Could have had a flood. Any suggestions will help. Thank you in advance.

Are you using a prefilter box? You can use some gutter guard as a mesh barrier.
