Don't Jump!!!

I was at the LFS a few days ago and was just browsing for about 5 minutes. All the sudden behind my back I heard a splat noise. One of the huge koi in a FW tank along the wall had tried to make a run for it!! He managed to jump out of the tank and was now flopping away on the floor! As he flopped around I went to find the woman who was working in the aquatics dept. We found the fish in a pile of nasty dust underneath the tank he hopped out of. He was put back into the tank and was doing find 10 minutes later when I left. 8O As I left the girl realized that maybe she should put a cover on that tank.

all to often our fish make a decision to go 'carpet surfing'. Often this is a result of being startled by something.
