Free swimming hillstreams

I had never seen it before today, but this afternoon I caught my L. disparis swimming directly into the outflow from a 301 powerhead. He ended up just sort of suspended in the bubblestream, but that thing pumps out a goodly flow of water. I tried to take a picture, but kept getting blurred shots of just the bubbles - you could hardly see the fish.
I guess he got his fill because now he's resting on the bottom at the far end. Swimming upstream proved fruitless!
