Green mandarin went carpet surfing

Brenden came running around the tank while I was putting nori in and said "daddy a fish jumped out". I looked and my male green mandarin was dried on the wood floor. It had to have happen last night because I saw it yesterday in the tank. I never knew mandarins to jump.

My psychedelic mandarin (seriously who can spell that) jumped in my Overflow looking for pods. It was strange considering I use a glass top. I had to rescue him we wasn't strong enough the jump back out, but I did watch him try!
So yes they can jump

What kind of music was playing in the background? It wasn't Judas Priest suicide music or anything, was it?

Wow, I never heard of them jumping before. Have you noticed it being harassed by any other fish?

Sorry for the loss.

Never saw anything harass it. If you saw what it had to do to get out of the tank you would be even more impressed. I never knew they could jump but man this one did.
