Lief, my male, will jump a little bit for bloodworms. I got a pair of tweezers, put a small chunk of frozem bloodworms in some water so they separate from one another, pick up a nice-sized one and then hover it slightly over the surface of his water. He doesn't do a spectacular jump or anything, but he gets his head out of the water at least :) It's so funny to watch him wiggle his body while under the water still, preparing for the jump. Off topic, but when I introduced the first female to his tank (behind a divider) he was either really happy or really frustrated and dropped a big turd. It was hilarious xD
