Coo Coo Loach!

Thought you guys would get a little laugh (even though I'm actually a little worried). My kuhli loach is coo-coo! Shes always hang'n around on the suction cups that hold up the heater and now ever since installing the surface skimmer - loves hanging on the suction cups of that too. i swear it looks like she's into gymnastics sometimes if you stop and just observe her for a little while. BUT now she gone a step further and likes hanging half in and half out of the skimmer!!
What do you guys think i should do ...

Put a mesh or sponge guard over the skimmer opening.

Give her somewhere safer to play.
Perhaps a ceramic castle, or a 'Jaws' that opens and closes... I am sure the stores are full of interesting choices like that.
Maybe even a small pile of rocks with a cave, or an 'in' and 'out' tunnel.

I have ten of these guys. I wouldn't worry until they start hanging out on the couch

The fastest way to success is patience.

Best,
