Lost 4 small green chromis the same way. It was not until the 4th one that I saw what was happening. In my case my blue tail damsels would charge after the chromis and they would flee and inadvertently crash into the powerhead and get stuck.

Keep in mind the suction applied to your finger is minimal. Wrap your finger (or two) around the intake and the suction is much stronger.

like kam i lost two small green chromis, no match to the suction, to your finger it may not be that bad, but in my case, my chromis were really small. However, they alway hung around the powerheads so i wasnt suprised that it happened. Hope your fish is feeling better.

I guess it is possible that he just got to close and his whole body became sucked against it.

He is doing pretty well right now...considering. I think he will survive. We will see.

Update: My Coral Beauty never fully recovered, eventually he started loosing his color and after he refused to eat, I knew the inevetable wasn't far off.

Unfortunately, he died the other night. :| It makes me sad that it happened and I have no idea what could have been done to prevent it.

My retarded Lawnmower blenny got sucked inside of one of my maxijets. I think he was trying to pick at some algae or something and then got stuck inside the intake.....

I noticed it when the PH was shooting bubbles everywhere...... I thought it was a snail, but it was a fish...... that was about 2.5 weeks ago and he's still perfectly fine.....

He was a healthy fish and he got stuck inside of one.....
