Fish stuck

It seems like every time I get new fish one of them gets stuck in the weirdest places and doesn't make it do I just have bad luck or is it something else

hmm.. well for the power head i would say over the intake (in guessing thats where they are getting stuck) put some foam pad, like a sponge that you would put into a filter , i use fluval edge sponges to cover the intake on my aqua clear to keep fry from being sucked up

as for the driftwood and shell, i would say bury the bottom of the drift wood and shell under your substrate so that its not possible for them to get under it
