Shrimp & filters #1
Do I need to cover my inlet pipe with anything to stop Shrimp going on an unintended journey round my filter or are they fairly strong swimmers?

Just so you know I have a very strong current: I'm using an Ecco Pro filter 200 (turnover of 600L/Hour) on a 60 Litre tank and was planning on either Cherry Shrimp or Amano Shrimp.

Re: Shrimp & filters #2
Thats a lot of flow, I don't have any issues but i've got a tank with double the water volume and only 490L flow.

I think it's probably safer to make sure that they can't get sucked up
