Yea, the intake grate is at the water's surface, and there is a little pool of water about a 3/4" above the sponge that the fish swim around in. There's really nowhere they can go in there but back...

I LOVE my Spec III. I've got a betta in it at my work with some moss and java fern. He loves it. I also like how I can hide all of the equipment in the filter area rather than the presentation...

I have the 10" FugeRay on my Spec III and the algae went crazy. I went back to stock lighting until I can inject CO2 into the tank. The Fugeray is definitely high lighting on a Spec III.
