I forgot to put back on the filter when I turned it on while feeding. He likes to hang out next to the maxi all the time.

ugh, I had a filefish get stuck to a power head. He ended up being fine but they are not strong swimmers.

Any fish that is able to get sucked into any pump, let alone a maxijet has some other ailment going on.

In nature they float around in the water column especially at night. when I first got mine I found found him attached to the side of the wave maker a few times. make sure he's eating, it will help to fatten him up. Hope he makes it.

Yeah! they can be jumpers so be careful around the tank when lights are off, or install a cover.

That's usually at night. Tough to be careful while sleeping. aAmd being careful for a jumping fish seems like it would be almost constant oberservation.

Get a cover. All fish will jump, some are just more likely. No cover? you will have a carpet surfer.
