I had shrimp get stuck in intake, and found in filter housing still alive. I was amazed. The bad was fry lost to filter. A tip from a girl at petsmart was to cover intake with panty hose. It works well but weird when you go to get pantyhose for you tank. Lol. I will be ordering some soon. Thanks

I had the cover off, and sunlight dappling into the tank for a few minutes and I noticed they all had like 4 scales that were green right on top of their heads between the ruby color...

That's another sign that they are healthy and happy, I'll see if I can find the article about it.
