I've never had a fish sucked up by the filter. I agree that a healthy fish should have no problem swimming away. The fry in my guppy tank even go right up to the filter intake to pick at the algae growing there and I've never found any fry in the filter. They may have just been weak or sick.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

I'm fairly certain they died long before being sucked in by the intake...I lost them all within 2 days, so I think something was up with them.
