Fish jumping

Ok, So in my previous topic(Nitrate Jump) i was worried about a nitrate jump and thought a missing fish caused the problem but thought there would be more ammonia and nitrites involved.

As it turns out, I found the zebra fish behind my tank.

Now can someone please explain to me why he would of jumped out of the tank? There is no glass lid, But i do have a hood on it, But an opening at the back for all the wires.

He could have been spooked or was chasing another fish and misjudged at night or early morning, Hard to say. Sorry for your lost.

That's a good discription about never giving up on a fish, even if it does look almost dead. Great stuff...

There could be dozens of reasons. Aggression, feeding, Stray voltage, water parameters and many more. Really hard to say.
