Same here. As well as CPD fry living amongst the ceramic tubes which made them virtually impossible to retrieve without crushing them with the very tubes they were living in.

Wait, I once found a pristella tetra in my filter. I had taken off the out put tube but left the filter running so i could wash it and I come back no more then a minute later and he's in the filter. He was a strong fish so he swim in there of him own free will.

What's YOUR strangest/coolest filter find?
Marbled Crayfish (Marmokrebs) only need a single crayfish to reproduce. They are self-cloning so I don't think you would ever see eggs. Just new small Marbled Crayfish.

This has also happened to me, not pleasant.

Strangest thing found in filters?

Catfish used to get into the undergravel filter here.

I find yoyo loaches in my filters on a regular basis, but I don't bother retrieving them anymore because they've demonstrated the ability to come and go from the filter box at will.
