I'm sorry to hear that. I heard they make covers for them. I assume its like a foam you put over it so they dont get caught in it.

I know some people get black pantyhose and make a cover for them but they need to be cleaned often.

If it got stuck to the side of the Koralia I would bet it was not doing well in the first place. they are designed to not kill fish/snails, unless yours was very dirty and caked with algae so it was sucking water all from one spot.

the powerheads aren't really strong enoug hto hold a fish to them, my guess is it died and just got pulled in to it.
