Adding an water pump

Hi i was planning on adding a water pump to create flow in my 60g for my L200 and was wondering if the other fish in my tank would be ok with it.
1x L106
10x rummy nose tetras
5x cardinal tetras
3x diamond tetras
1x ropefish

they should be fine, maybe the rope fish will get a little battered, so maybe put him in a separate tank or exchange. cheers jk

So i added the pump and the rope fish seems to love it bc he keeps going back to it but his body gets stuck on it then he goes flying off. He has really grown on me so i don't want to get rid of him but that cant be fun for him

What could i use to cover the intake of the pump that wouldn't reduce flow too much but would stop him from getting sucked into it? Any help is appreciated

i would use some netting from an old scoop net or just buy one for a cheap price and cut up. You can also get the metal attachments, but forgot what they are called now. cheers jk
