Hey guys, I'm buying a 30 gallon tank set up from a person on Craigslist today and they have a Marineland Emperor 400 GHP filter that they are throwing in for $25. However the filter is missing the lid on the top...this poses a problem because my cats might get into it but I was wondering if I taped some plastic wrap to the top of it would that be okay? Do I NEED the top of the filter for it work and home the bb? Thanks for any help. Here is the filter:
Marineland sells replacement parts but the lid assembly is of course Out of Stock :(
I'm also thinking this filter might actually be too strong, and its going to be an NPT so I don't even know if it's necessary to have that large of a filter.
