Around 12:30 last night something just told me to look at the tanks (i have six bettas) and i noticed my only girl wasnt in her tank Idk when she jumped out cause i didnt hear anything, and it took me a while but i found her hanging out between the wall and the dresser looking more dead than alive :( it was really sad, shes fine now though, i think, her skin (do fish even have skin?) is like peeling(?), or its some kind of infection so idk what do do now :( at least shes alive though right? it gave me a heartattack :(

CHECK YOUR AMMONIA LEVELS -- if they are fine:

Some bettas just don't like the water and prefer places where the grass might be greener.

out of 20, I had one that was so inclined to do the exact same thing. He liked to lodge himself into the power filter outlet, and just lay there. he would always jump down after I would discover him, on his own accord.

Sadly one day he didn't jump off of it the right way, and I wasn't around to find him until he'd already dried out.

i was very sad :(.

it happens. some just .. have that jump mentality..

You could try lowering the water level some, or moving the heater so it makes less of a perch. I would definitely do something about it if it is not related to the ammonia levels.

Hmm. All i can say is make sure there is not even a small opening around the lid and if there is cover it some way. And like tigris said move the heater to keep him from thinkning " Hmm what a nice perch I think i will jump out of the water!" And test the water a.s.a.p. Hopefully he will realize that bettas cant fly!
