Silly loach!

Random little story I want to share. oOo
I have a small shoal of Yoyo loaches in one of my 30 gallon tanks, and one of the little cuties nearly gave me a heart attack today. I couldn't find him anywhere (it's easy to know when this one's missing, since he's the smallest) and so I nearly uprooted the whole tank trying to find him. I kept having some lingering suspicion that he had got caught in the filter somehow, so after rearranging the decor in my tank when I couldn't find him I opened the lid and looked.
He was swimming around the filter cartridge trying to get to a small piece of algae pellet that had got sucked in there.
I poured him out immediately, and he seems okay. I'm just baffled as to how he got in there (he's too big to have fit into the intake), and of course freaked out because loach in filter. XD

LOL.. I changed my HOB filter to a sponge yesterday and I dumped out the water into the tank and I went from 4-10 baby fish to 25 LOL..
