    Just read a thread on RC about a dude who's diamond goby was flapping around in pieces on his vortech. Not sure if your 20 is powerful enough or if the fish was sick enough. But it confirms that it can happen. Maybe check around the vortech for remains?

    guess anything is possible, he was also pecking at the vortech today too around the same time he was pecking at the skimmer intake collection. So could be possible
