Has anyone ever had this happen???

I went to Lexington yesterday and I bought a jewel cichlid. Being that I am going to put up my new 55 gallon this weekend and didnt have the room in the 10 for another breeding net I decided to put him in the breeding net in the community tank. Well I got up this morning and everything was fine....I came back a few hours later...no jewel cichlid!!!! I though what in the world...I started looking in the floor thinking that he might have jumped out this morning when I fed....no fish on the floor.....and then I got to looking and there he was.....just having the time of his life in the community tank with all the other fish!!!!!!!!!! He hasnt been picking on anyone....so far.....He's not huge but I was shocked that he jumped out of the breeder and into the tank with the other fish! Makes me wonder if I could buy younger Cichlid and and let them rome around in community tank before I put them in the 55! Hummmmmmmm. I am still shocked!
