Oh Jesus!

Are you serious?

I state again.. I GUARENTEE the fish will not swim in the pipe with any kind of pump/filter forcing water threw it.

If you guys want to make up every unrealistic excuse in the world to justify something, have fun! The fact is, it isn't going to happen!

Hey it could very possibly happen. He was just having some fun and seeing if it would work. He never said that it would. So there is no reason to talk like this I am sure you have had creative ideas in your life before. And this is one for him not all ideas work but they are worth a try.

fish swim directly in front of powerheads also. they swim in strong currents in the ocean.
what's unrealistic is comparing human behavior with fish.

#1 Reef's don't typically have strong currents, Reef's are in shallow water.

#2 What an animal does in the 'real world' to survive is MUCH different then what a domestic 'pet' does. Even if your fish came from the ocean, it's now in a fish tank and has adapted to a much different life.

#3 Swiming into a power head in open water is MUCH different then swiming into a closed tube with water being forced out of it.

#4 Are you saying fish a dumb? Because I've seen a tang that eats out of ones hand and actually allows you to pet it. Not dumb by any means.

Salmon don't live on a reef!

Also how many fish under 1" in size do you know that swim 'upstream"? None! Fish that small arn't big/strong enough to fight a current.
