Jumping out


So... one of my smaller rainbow took a jump out the tank while I was cleaning the glass, not sure if he freaked put by the cleaning on the outside or what. Anyone else had that happen? I did pick him up and toss him back in but unfortunately I didn't get my hands when picking him up, not sure if that hurt him.


Rainbows are notorious for jumping. You need to have a pretty tight fitting lid on your tank.

Your jumper should be fine. They can be pretty tough little fish.

One morning I came into the fishroom to discover a Bosemani had jumped out of his 55g tank into the 10g tank sitting next to it!
