Mesh Shrimplet Guards.

I had read that 316 stainless steel mesh 20 was the way to go in making inlet guards, so I ordered some. Now that I have it in hand, the mesh doesn't look fine enough to exclude very young shrimplets. Anyone else have problems or success with this material?

I purchased few from the site above me , Han aquatics .

 

In fact he made some square one's for me because my Penguin filters use square intake and they work great.

 

They do not impede the filter circulation and do not suck up the tiniest baby shrimp . 

 

Before buying his I had ''shrimp safe'' mesh I picked up on ebay and it was garbage as I saw it suck up a tiny shrimp.
