My brother had one a few months ago... During a walk my cat Midnight knocked the tank down... The walk we took was long and when we came back we saw a fish in it's tank tipped over and no water. We thought he was dead when he flopped around. We got him in water, and he lived, but it was scary!

My yellow VT Sashimi thought it would be amusing to squish himself into the sump behind his 8G Aqueon Evolve home. I had put a bit too much water in the tank, basically topping it off, and he squeezed himself under the lid that covers the sump.. I immediately turned off the filter. The opening is too small to fit a net of any sort, so I tried to chase him out with my finger. Bad idea. :( He jumped! He landed on the floor and somehow ended up under the filing cabinet that was holding his tank..

He was down there a good 30 seconds before I could get to him and pick him up as gently as I could. He was shaken up for a day or two, but he's recovered since.

He had been recovering from the fin rot that he came home worth from being a Walmart prisoner, so I was really concerned about his fins. They were fine though, and they're still growing out! :)

this was a long time ago, one of my small HMPK marble boy went down the garbage disposal drain while I was pouring out water, I had the net over the container he was in. At first he went in the net, as soon as I move the net about to put him in the smaller container he jumped into the the sink and down the disposal drain. I freaked out so much my heart almost jumped outta my chest ~_~... I look through the drain and stuck my hand in, very carefully feel for him, when I found him, he just flopped unto my hand and I put him in a small container with lotsa stress coat :( I never make mistake like this again, now I am always super careful... My boy is still healthy and living, blah talking about it still makes me feel horrible.

EEEK! Oh my god, that's terrifying! I'm glad he lived though

So far, Rosie hasn't proven much of a jumper, and hopefully never will.
What is with all of these bettas that have decided that they want to fly? XD

That is why my bettas go nowhere near the kitchen during water changes. Now, granted, I don't have a garbage disposal, but I wouldn't want to take the chance of one of my guys making it down the drain.
