Loaches Swimming into Filter

I just added four yo-yo loach to a recently cycled 55-gallon tank several days ago and last night noticed a couple of the loaches attempting to swim up the out-flow of the HOB power filter. At one time, one of the loach was stuck in the bio-pads and thrashing around before getting unstuck. Have others had this experience? Any ideas out there for screening off the out-flow to prevent a fish from ending up in the filter or on the floor?
