Has anyone experienced a goby getting sucked in by an mp10 and killing it? Has it happen to someone or can it happen? This might have happened to me yesterday, I was pretty bummed about it.

funny you should post this.
I just watched as a shower of mini brittle star arms cascaded through my tank. I have a big powerhead on a timer, 30 minutes on, 30 minutes off, I guess one crawled in there while it was off.
But what I did was glued some screen (actually circles cut from a salvaged fluval filter basket) inside and then glued the nozzles in place over it. Has worked great, reduced the flow just enough so it's not a whirlwind and keeps my important critters from getting in there. I was terrified my pair of cleaner shrimps were going to go in there if I didn't do something.

I seriously doubt it caused the death.

A healthy fish will never get caught in a power head.
