Well I have baby Endlers and oh buy do they make water change time fun!

The bold little sods like to get tooooooooooooo close to the pipe, a piece of airline so the suction is not to great as not to suck them all up but just enough to clean up all the poop lurking about the bottom of the tank. I seem to always have at least 2 in the bucket by the end of cleaning time 2 I have to catch in a small bowl and put back, they seem to be non the worse for their adventures thankfully.

Look closely in the next 2 pictures and you will spot the little horrors in action

That happens to me too! Always seems to be a herd of new baby guppies when I want to vacuum the gravel and one always gets sucked up right at the start and then I have a heck of a time getting the syphon going again. You are right, they go through the hose without suffering any harm and I am positive they are waiting for the next time you clean so they can do the ride again. Crazy!
