This is what my Guppies do and only once did one get sucked all the way through. This was especially scary for me because mine goes directly down the drain, not into a bucket. I pulled the siphon out of the tank to stop the suction and ran for the other end to intercept him. Stupid Guppy made me make a HUGE mess on my hardwood floors and cause me to age about 15 years. Now, I am much more careful in the Guppy tank. Thankfully my Cories don't do that, I am not going to give them a chance.
Oh and the Guppy that went for the ride was just fine and looked for another ride in the siphon which he was told "no" to by me. ha ha Silly fish are simply so playful it seems.
