Has anyone tried the new Urchin pump guards for MP10's yet? Saw em on BRS and they looked a bit different than the NemProtect models. It looks like these may have less of an impact on the flow patterns.

I wonder whether the designers of these things have tested them to see if they actually work? This one seems potentially better than the nemprotect, though I don’t see the claim that it changes the flow pattern to be an upgrade LOL. Unless you can reduce the water velocity per square inch (really only possible with a significant increase in surface area) I suspect they won’t work as claimed.

I have tried similar ones that were to keep out smaller fish, you have to constantly clean them as the holes will clog a lot faster.
