RIP Moe

So my really cool scooter blenny that I got for Christmas decided to swim up the powerhead and get stuck. So not happy.
Saw enough of the fins sticking out from the intake... luckily my bf was able to get him free (I so don't deal well with that kind of thing)- not in time, though.

On a slightly better note, he did say that he thinks my cleaner is awesome as it picked at his hangnails on his finger.





Oh and the powerhead has been unplugged, and WILL be getting a cover for the intake.

Sorry about Moe

I'm glad you can put something over the powerhead intake. I don't have SW, but in FW we sometimes put sponges over our filter intakes so small fish don't hurt themselves.

Sorry to hear this. Thise darn PH's claim way too many fish.
Maxijets come with cover, may want to check them out if you can't find covers for the ones you have.

Buy a filter sponge and cut a slit in the end. Slide it over the ph . Works fine and cost very little.
