i have a 55 gallon malawi tank. ive had this tank for several months and decided to experiment a little. i added a fluval fx5 and an overflow box. the overflow box is a real pain but the filter is great. i had it all installed for about a week and i lost lost one of my little johanni mbunas. i looked everywhere and couldnt find him. i figured he jumped out cause my tank isnt covered. this was about two weeks ago. today i took out my filter and put some media in it. i found my poor little soldier inside of it. he was stuck between the basket and the foam pad..he looked perfect!!!! when i looked up close, he flopped out of the basket and across my front porch. i grabbed him up and stuck him back in the tank with his buddies. he seems fine after two weeks in the filter! i looked at the overflow box and found that the tube that holds the prefilter to the outlet had raised. i bet thats how he made it all the way down. i removed overflow box and put the filter like it was supposed to be. poor little fella. i think he needs a trophy.
