    I recently purchased a Rio Nano skimmer for use in my future octo tank and was looking for an effective plan to keep the little octo IN the tank and OUT of the filteration(for those of you not familliar with the Rio it is a hang-on-back skimmer/filter) any and all help reguarding this issue would be greatly appreciated:smile:

    I think I have tried it all from Astroturf to heated wires. The best solution I've come up with is to use sponge over all intakes and outflows. It takes a bit more maintenance to keep the sponge from clogging, but most species do not penetrate it.

    Did you do this on your overflows as well or do you have a drilled tank?
