theres a trap to prevent fish from being sucked in.only the tiny ones can get through.luckily the pipe connected to the tank was only 4 inches deep in water

well on my latest DIY I found to my surprise that I had super glued my middle finger to a piece of PVC. . It was very funny after the first round of shock went away!!!! I looked at the wife and said " this ain't even funny" then we both started to laugh uncontrollably. What was so surprising is that I made sure to keep that hand away from the portion that was being glued. Guess i didn't do so well. then we started to go through the jokes of going to the ER and trying to explain why I had a 29" piece of PVC glued to my middle finger!!!!!!!!. Thanks to fingernail polish remover I was able to extract my finger from the PVC but now it has my finger print on it in super glue!!!!!!!

hope y'all have a good laugh!!!!!

LOL yeah, that super glue is pretty strong and instant stuff. I used to work for a manufacturing company where we used super glue occasionally and there were a couple times I accidentally glued my fingers together.
