First time shrimp keeper. I have had four amano shrimp for 2 weeks and never see them. Today I found 3 in the filter. i put them all back in the tank. My filter is a hang on the back filter. I thought they were getting sucked up but I just witness a shrimp climb up on my big rock and leap like four inches to wear the water comes out of the filter. The tank is covered in algae so they have lots of food. What should I do about this...

If the tank water is very close to the filter outlet they will try and get in that way
Can you post a picture of the top of the tank
