For a fish to get stuck in a powerhead IMO would mean they aren't doing very well. What are your parameters?

Hmm.... I heard of fish being suck in, but usually when they are sick and week You said that it happened to you few times? Is it possible there is too much flow in the tank? How big is the tank?

Personally I think that is a lot of flow for a 55, I am happy with my 2 750's on a wavemaker in my 50.

Now I will try to not sound like a tang nazi hete but large fish in a small tank with 3 big power heads, is thete any room for the fish to swim without getting too close to a powerhead?

That sounds like to much flow for a 55 imo especially the 1050 is the 1050 the one that they stick to?
