Chihiros Doctor making shrimp jump

Like the title says, I have a Chihiros Doctor installed a couple of inches below water level. Last night I was watching one of my amano's eating algae on the ring/mesh. When it turned on the shrimp jumped out of the water onto the floor! Luckily I was there and saved it but now I keep it installed near the bottom of my tank. Has anyone experienced something like this before?

Never had that happen to my shrimp but it could have just been that your shrimp was startled when it came on, however I would suggest as you have done to keep it closer to the bottom of the tank.
