I mainly have it for fin protection though as I really think it'd kill me if after he finally heals; Genie gets sucked into the filter and his fins rip! >.<
The baffling and pre-filtering are just added bonuses! =]
Oh, for a lot of them I made my own pre-filters with a hunk of AquaClear sponge. Cut an "X" into the middle of it, slide it over the intake & rubber band it on to make sure it doesn't slip off. Put a decoration or something in front of it and we are good to go.
I have a LOT of AQ sponges from when I used to raise fresh water angels and had a load of grow out tanks. Kept them 'cuz I just KNEW they would come in handy!!!
I always have extras in various sizes in my 75 gal. tank's filters so I can seed a new tank when I need to.
