Will my filter suck up my guppies?

I afraid they'll get sucked up into the filter! It's a medium sized filter I bought from petsmart.

I don't believe so. I don't think guppies swim down at the bottom of the tank. It's unlikely... Don't worry...

Put fine netting around your intake, baby guppies will indeed get sucked up.

A store that specializes in aquatic pets. Ifnothing else, use an old pair of nylons.

Guppies are live breeders baby ones will get sucked up in the filter you must put some fine netting over the intake valve to keep baby fish from being sucked into the filter.
