Six Line... Jumpers?

Tonite I opened my dt hood and there he was... On my glass center platform, dead. Poor guy. Do six lines usually jump? He's never had ich or been sick. All of my other fish seem fine. 135g fowlr.

Wrasses are jumpers. Sorry about your fish. I had a wrasse jump a while back; it sucks.

Thx bg! Do they do it from stress. He showed no signs and perms are great. Ugh. He was one cool dude. I guess it's off to the lfs this weekend. What's your thought on a fox face? Currently I have 5 chromis, 2 clowns, 1 Picasso, I pseudochromie, 1 green spot goby, 1 anthias... And a nice cuc.

I love foxfaces! They are so cool IMO. I even think their colors when they sleep/get stressed are cool. And then when they raise their dorsal fins-too cool!! I would love one, but can't put one in a 55g. You should totally get one!!

Yes they are all jumpers. I had a flasher wrasse jump a while ago. My tank is in my bedroom next to the door, and i had a bag hanging on the door. Well i didnt see my wrasse for a day or so so i thought it died in the rock somewhere. Couldnt find it anywhere. Then my cat started trying to get into the bag hanging on the door. YEP, that's where it jumped to. Lesson learned. Got an eggcrate for the top. Havent gotten another wrasse yet, but i plan to. They are so interesting and pretty. Definitely a nice addition to any tank.

I would suggest an egg crate top also. After my wrasse jumped, I made one for my bowfront. It wasn't difficult at all. Only cost $15 for the whole sheet of eggcrate and a little bit of time. I have a wrasse again, and if he wants to jump, he'll have to aim well. Haha
