These premium, stackable sieves where created after dropping a DIY style PVC pipe made sieve one too many times while harvesting copepods and rotifers. We wanted to design a simple sieve that was not bulky and could fit securely on a variety of culture vessels and aquariums.


Each part of this bundle was designed in-house by us, at Hackers’ Reef. The plastic parts are 3D printed with time tested and fish safe materials that we trust in our own systems. The various size filter meshes are made from high quality, chemical resistant nylon for years of use in fresh or salt water. The filter size is engraved into the sieve for quick identification and these markings will never fade or peel off over time like stickers do.


The sieve tank trim adapter has been tested on Aqueon brand 2.5gal, 10gal, 20gal & 29gal aquariums, but should fit most similar sized trimmed tanks commonly used for copepod and rotifer cultures. Securely holds your single or stacked sieves for easy and safe pouring.

How to use:

1) Select the correct sized sieve for the animals (critters?) you are looking to separate from the water.

2) Slowly pour water into your sieve, take care not to overflow the sieve.

3) Place over container you want to transfer animals into and invert sieve. Slowly pour water with matching parameters over inverted sieve to backwash animals into new container.

4) Wash items with cold or warm water to remove any leftover particles from nylon mesh, wipe down or allow to air dry. Do not use soap, though rubbing alcohol may be used if necessary.




Properly wash and dry equipment to avoid cross contamination of cultures. For best results do not share equipment between cultures.
