Its possible that they were sucked into the filter as juveniles and have been living in there.

Wrapping a nylon sock around the intake, or sticking a sponge over it will stop that kind of stuff from happening.

No, there are channels then must have walked in on 3 corners of the filter box. The found the way back out. Haven't seen others in there since.

The fear of sucking up the babies is why I am using that kind of filter.
