In all honesty, the suction is not that forceful to trap a fish unless it’s unhealthy IMO. I’ve used that size filter with much smaller fish and never had that happen. Is it possible they were not doing well and their listlessness got them caught in the filter?

Regardless, you can actually place a piece of foam over the intake to act as a pre-filter.
