If they did most likely they got sucked into the filters. I have two HOBs and an power head. The power head I turn on during the day and off at night. This keeps the tank floor clean durning the day and then at night gives them some time to sleep with out being pushed around. :)

I was using a sponge filter with power head but they got so big I needed a bigger filter. Then my filter didn't reach the bottom of the tank so I added the power head to circulate the floor :) Works pretty good so far :)

I knew one or two escaped!  

At least they became a nutritious food for the adults and not the filter!  :feedme    :Scoff:

I saw a few more after I did a water change. But it would have been impossible to get them.

I am going to make a breeding mop and see how that goes :teehee
