Hi been told about pre filters lately and think a great idea to save cleaning out the full filter etc, one problem I have a shallow tank and nice gush lilly pipes so don't want one on there, is there any that attack onto the pipes in a small just before the main filter that are any good ? or something similar

Thanks dean

It kind of defeats the purpose. You may aswell just clean filter rather than reduce flow with extra media. The whole point of a prefilter is so you can rinse it without opening with filters and clean them less often.
Unless you can hide it, its a bit more cleaning for you, im afraid
Thinking about It I agree seems quite pointless actually might aswel just clean main filter every 1-2 weeks thanks anyway , on my next bigger tank

Thanks Dean
