The Stainless Steel Strainer from ISTA is a protection for plastic filter intakes or hoses. It is not usable with glassware or stainless steel intakes! The connection point is not covered with a flexible seal as found on many other filter guards, but it is completely made from metal. Therefore the intake or hose it is to be connected to has to be flexible itself.

It efficiently prevents e.g. shrimps, snails and small fish from getting sucked in, and prevents the filter intake slots from being clogged by plant parts.
