Mag pumps, the fishes friend...

Kind of amusing, my little clown goby dissapeared two weeks ago. I found him living happily in the sump last week, but have been unable to catch the little guy due to equipment crowding in the return chamber. Two days ago I was checking my tank and VWA-LA! He is back in the main tank without a mark on him and happy as can be. I was pretty impressed that the little guy got sucked up by the mag 9.5 and lived to tell about it.

Well I swear on my tank that its the truth. I still don't believe it, I keep waiting each day to wake up and find him dead from shock or trauma or something, however the fish is 100% cool and still has no problems. Does water actually pass the impeller of the mag, or does the impeller pull it in and push it up maybe? The only other explination would be that the little fish swam back through all my baffles to the overflow side of the sump, fought the 800GPH overflow current up 5 feet and four 90 degree turns then jumped up the stream of water into the main overflow chamber and out through the fish guard to freedom! In all honestly I think that the chances of that are as good as the chances of not getting torn to shreds by the impeller, however I just can't reason that one LoL.

LoL, I never thought about sabotage!!!! My fish have a long way to roll in bags to the ocean though, about 800 miles in any direction LoL. All drains lead to some nasty lakes a creeks where I am from.
