Fish getting stuck to filter
i have a 55 gal tank with a aqua clear filter and once in a while i will have a fish get stuck to the filter and die. is there a way to adjust airflow?

no, but you can get a foam pre filter to put over the intake. that will help diffuse the flow a bit.

As like he said but the fish you've described might have already been dead.

You could just put some sponge over the intake.
Also, if a fish does in fact get stuck to one, then that means you have way too much filtration, or the fish are weak due to sickness, etc. Most healthy fish should be able to stay away and swim away when they start to be pulled in.
