fish and overflow box filter stop the trip to fish heaven

Our Tenecor 150 gallon freshwater has the overflow filter system. Fish are always getting trapped/sucked in here. Would a fishnet material over the teeth be suggested to allow water flow put stop fish taking a ride to filter heaven? Anyone have solutions or suggestions?

Thansk in advance fish buddies.

Use a thick woven plastic type mesh material to weave in and out through the teeth. It helps.
We, as a people, know so much more about outer space than we do about our own oceans. This lack of knowledge can very well spell the dangers that lay in wait for us.

The oceans surely would swallow us before a rock comes down to smite the planet of it's life.
