So I did a 100% water change about ten minutes ago. B.J. is in his cup floating inside the tank. I walk out of my room for less than a minute, and when I came back, he was out of his cup and into the big tank exploring his new tank ornament. I'm not sure if he jumped or tipped the cup over, but I'm thinking he jumped because the cup wasn't tipped over........ mischievous fishy!
I had a magician once. His name was Maine. He shared a 10 gallon with mellowed out old man Spartan. The divider was 2.5-3 inches above the water line. i turn away, picked something up, turned back around and there he is all up in Spartan's face! x.x
It was funny and scary at the same time. I didn't see him behind his cave so i thought he jumped out the tank. Then he reappeared and did a little wiggle dance, and went back to exploring. I guess he decided he was acclimated to the water enough haha
What a stinker! none of my fish are jumpers, but one of my females tipped her cup once... I let her do it, she had been sitting in the water for about an hour when I took the cup off of the rock it was propped on. She had been trying to tip it the whole time so I thought I'd let her have the satisfaction of doing it her self XD
I have only ever had one fish jump! It was when I was moving, I was putting them in their moving- rubber maids, and I had nine fish at the time. I go to put the lids on, and one was empty! I freaked out, my first thought was he flipped out, into the sink, down the disposal.... But nope, he just landed between two cups! Silly Sykes!
