I dropped a new green bta in my tank today and I came home after a 4 hour bike ride to see him being partially sucked into my filter. My water was all cloudy when I got home. Well I guess you can say it was a bit hazey but idk if I should be concerned at all. He looks fine now.

20 gallon long tank
AI SOL's (lights)

Just keep an eye on it. As long as they are healthy they can usually come back from stuff like that pretty well.

Got any pics?

Bleh!

Should be fine if he is not too torn up and is healthy like jedi says.

Run some Carbon JIC unless you already are. ;)

He is fine now. I turned off the filter and rotated my rock away from the filter. Healthier than ever now.
