Hey Darryl. Yeah maybe, but I tell you, this thing is TIGHT! The tank is back on now. Its not a huge deal to remove it but I almost don't even feel like messing with it now. Is that screen really necessary? I mean maybe it is. I guess like was stated, just check the clear inline filter more often now.
