Not to ignore your opinions but i doubt voltage is the case. Indidnt see any change of behaviour with the other fishes neither the corals. I checked all my equipement tu make sure there was no tiped wires or anything broken everything is working good. Injust thoufht it was weird to see 3 jumping in such a short time. Ive seen on the news the survival behaviour or bisons fleeing yellowstone parc recently. I know animals can feel things such as earthquarks and more. I just wonder if something could be linked

There doesn't need to be broken wiring or connections for there to be stray voltage. Millivolt leakage is pretty common, while a large leak is easy to find (it hurts) there is no way to test for very small current leakage without a testing meter.

I had a minor electrical leak on a pump that I found by touching ground a the tank water. I could feel electricity flow thru me. Just a tingle, not like when a heater failed now that had a good bite. Now I run a titanium grounding rod and a GFI receptacle.

even brand new equipment can be faulty , the one thing with salt water don't ignore stray voltage it has a way bigger bite .
I'm sure just about everyone here has experienced it its no joke
you can have the same stray voltage in freshwater but the bite isn't as strong but yes it's still there and shouldn't be ignored
