Commercial overflow screen?

Is there a product I can buy that will serve as a screen for an overflow? I have already used tank dividers that I bent in half, and they lasted for a while until the crease finally tore.

I have a 100G tank, a Uniquarium with an overflow + bio balls + return pump. I just love small schooling fish such as Eyespot and Harlequin Rasporas. The problem is that they are small enough, even the adults, to be "sucked" through the overflow.

This is the first tank I have owned since ~20 years ago in college (when I could only afford a 20G), and I was very happy with returning to the hobby with this 100G custom beauty complete with a custom wood stand and cover.

I did not anticipate this problem with the overflow. The other Golden Barbs and Checkered Barbs are not bothered at all by the overflow but the smaller Rasboras can't. Any ideas? I don't mind DIY stuff but hasn't this come up before and a commercial product is available?

Thanks. Kevin
