    Does this filter pose a threat to shrimplets?

    Hi everyone, I'm new here and to the hobby.
    Does my filter pose a threat to shrimplets? And if so, what can I do to prevent them from being sucked in? I know many shrimp keepers might tie a mesh around it, or take another sponge and do some type of DIY. Please help! I have shrimplets on the way already!
    I've attached some pictures of the filter and my 5 gal for scale.
