I had mine jump into the overflow. Many times they will get scared or frightened and jump.



You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.

a screen on top of the tank and another on the overflow and it will never happen again, if it is jumping one day you may find it on the floor... I had that happen with my old tank... I lost three fish to the floor.
Sometimes life is best left to it's own devices.
If your not happy at what you're looking at, you're looking at it the wrong way.

I would never have a tank without a close fitting, nothing to do with the fish, but I do have a problem with a water loving labrador, cant keep the maniac dog out of water, any water.

You would think an aquaium was too small for him, but nope, left with a 10 litre bucket of water and he puts his front paws in and his whole head under the water!!!

I have to make sure the bathoom door is locked when taking a bath - he makes a **** of a splash when he jumps in on top of you!!!!

I love it! My male black lab was the same way. Kiddie pools, bathtubs, 5 gallon buckets, hoses... Couldn't keep him out! Hehehe.
I digress.. We have to check our overflow frequently for shrimp etc. I think they like the ride.
