Missing Fish!

So I hard-plumbed my tank last night with PVC, etc. This morning when I took a look at the tank I couldn't find any fish. So I openned my canister filters and found 1 in the first one and the other 3 in the second one! I did not put any strainers on the end of the intake tubes (obviously) so I guess they just swam in or were sucked in. I thought they were smart enough to know to swim away from currents? Anyway, they are all fine, somehow . Just thought I would share!

90gal: 2x Tangerine Discus, 2x Clown Pleco, 2x Catfish.
75gal + 10gal sump: 2x Large Goldfish, 1x Common Pleco, 14x Leopard Danios
55gal: 5x Angelfish, 1x Common Pleco, 8x SIlver Tip Tetras, 16x Neon Tetras, 8x Albino Corys

Good to hear.

Currently I'm missing one of my weather loaches. I did a little remodeling of the tank yesturday, and hopefully I didn't crush him with a rock or something...I checked under them all and stirred the gravel a bit, and also checked the filters and around the tank if he jumped out, still no luck.

Ever since the mishap, they have been very shy - they hang out all the time behind one specific plant. I wonder what's going on back there.... They still swim around once in a while but they dont come up for food any more . Maybe they are traumatised?
