lol, I glanced up at my hugely-finned HM and thought something like that too.
And anything-PKs can jump... very well. On the first day I got Eli, he was an impulse enough that his tank water wasn't ready... dechlorinated, but not ready temperature-wise and such. I floated him in the cup anyway... and this was back when he really couldn't see Anything out of his blind eye, so he was super scared of almost everything. (It didn't help I had him sort of hidden between my tv and the wall at the time.) I wanted to get some pictures of him to show off and when I suddenly appeared to him from behind the tv, he got so scared. Poor thing actually flew
out of the cup and into the tank, then proceeded to bury himself in the gravel. I felt so bad. |D'
