Sadly, this is something that happens far too often Some fish will just take a leap.

Does your tank have a top? Sometimes fish can go haywire. When I'm feeding, some of my fish will shoot up from the bottom and splash me pretty good, I'm lucky they haven't jumped out yet. Sorry to hear.

That's a good point, sometimes my cichlids will bounce off my lid during feeding time.
