Somehow, someone managed to remove the plastic filter guard I have on the overflow pipe (DIY overflow), time to break out the rubber band again!
Perhaps you could fashion a wire/plastic screen that fit's inside the overflow pipe ?
I have a Texas cichlid that simply would not leave stick on thermometer alone ,so I removed the little suction cup and now he swims around the tank carrying the thermometer
