InventHelp Invention Helps Keep Small Fish Alive When Being Bred (MTN-1979)

Share Article

Headquartered in Pittsburgh, InventHelp is America's Largest Invention Submission Company, and is submitting the Flores Filter System to companies for their review.

An inventor from Bronx, N.Y., has developed and patented an invention for use with aquariums. The FLORES FILTER SYSTEM prevents small fish from being sucked up into the filtration intake tube, which prevents unwanted deaths of baby fish when breeding. Easy and convenient to install and use, it eliminates the need to use makeshift covers for the tube, which oftentimes don't work correctly. The system saves time and money for aquarium owners and is designed not to detract from the look of the aquarium.

The plastic mesh sleeve is designed to be secured around the filtration intake tube in an aquarium. The design blocks small fish from stronger currents, therefore giving a chance to swim away to safety.

When asked what inspired her idea, the inventor explained, "I'm a hobby aquarist and fish breeder and I noticed that hundreds of tiny fish from my tank were being sucked up into the filtration system, leaving me with little to no babies to raise. My invention keeps tiny fish happy and healthy and saves the user money when breeding the fish."

The original design was submitted to the Manhattan office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
