Question About Plakats

Purchased my first plakat off AquaBid today and I am VERY excited about it!!!

Was wondering, though, do they tend to jump more with their shorter fins than their long finned cousins?

TIA!!!

Here is a pic of the dude I am getting:

My one plakat is a ridiculous jumper. He scares me. Lol.

He's beautiful. I love the coloring.

LOL.. is it sad that I stalk aquabid enough to know who the seller of your fish is based on the picture.

I haven't noticed my PK being more likely to jump than my long fins but my males don't usually jump.. its the females I have to watch out for.

LOL - I have so many already, I should be banned from even LOOKING at AquaBid!!! FAT CHANCE!

Thanks for the info guys/gals. Sounds like it depends on the fish, huh?

I should have clarified. Kilo will jump at food. He once jumped out and landed on the lip of the tank and then slid back in. He doesn't just jump all day long. Lol.

Compared to any of the other tail types I've had (veil, crown, DBT, DT) my plakat is a MUCH bigger jumper!

I will have to make sure I keep his water level a little lower than normal. Thanks for the info!

Thank you.

Not sure - hopefully, some time this week. Haven't heard back from the seller yet about when he will be shipped, but I'm HOPING he goes out tomorrow since I already paid for him.
