Well to get into a fish brain (not as easy as one would think) We need to investigate with some questions. Here's the first round...
  • Did you witness it being harrassed by any of the other fish?

    Do you have anything in that room that would startle the fish?

    Do you have a general idea when this occured?

    Did it happen soon after lights on or lights off?

    What are you water readings soon after this event?

Based on your answers there may be more ?'s or we might come up with a theory.

nope, all he did was live under the live rocks making his tunnels

Do you have anything in that room that would startle the fish?

it is a quiet meditation room with nothing but fishtanks, pillows and books.

Do you have a general idea when this occured?

middle of the night

Did it happen soon after lights on or lights off?

sometime after lights off

What are you water readings soon after this event?

they have been stabilized for a week

The only new event was the dripping of the limewater, and that was done so minutely in comparison to the size of the tank. As I had never done this before, I only hung 1 quart to drip, I used 1/4 tsp of lime to the quart.

I do know that tank conditions (ammonia etc) can cause a fish to be stressed and litterally jump out of the tank. You said they have been stable for a wk what do you mean? I assume this a new tank how new?
