Tekkguy, How do you keep the baby shrimp from going into the filter area? There is a small inlet hole near the bottom and one half way up, then the wide grated area at top which extends below the water surface. I thought about cutting small pieces of soft sponge to fill the two small holes. My Spec 2 Gal has this as well. (I also have a Spec V) I do like these Fluvals!!
