Foam #1
Where could I get the foam they use around aquatic plant roots ?
I tried a few shops, but they didn't have any.

Does it have to be a certain type so its safe for fish ?

I also want to use it to close the gap around the outlet of my Juwel filter.
This is the third time one of my weather loaches has got in

Re: Foam #2

Would netting not be better if it is aroung the filter outlet. Other than that have you put any of the Juwel backing on the tank as that foam will be safe since it is for the tank. Expensive option for what you are trying to do.

Cheers,

Re: Foam #3
Foam would be a lot better as it can be wrapped around the outlet pipe to block the hole in the filter box.

I don't imagine foam will be expensive, otherwise it wouldn't be used on plants.

Juwel background ?
Now that is expensive

Just had a thought what about the top of a juice bottle fitted over the pipe. Not sure about diameters but it could be worth checking.

Just an idea.

Re: Foam #6
I would think any foam would be ok as long as it has not been dyed or had any glue on it
