3 nights ago, I happened to be up researching my next car. I was about to call it night and go to bed when I heard a large spash, followed by a thud. I quickly sprang to the tank and found that one of my gorgeous green terrors had jumped out and was behind the tank gasping. I was barely able to reach him an had to drag him across the carpet! I tossed her back into the tank and atched her for a little while. She seemed to be fine. Thank god the carpet broke her fall.
The next 2 days she seemed to be doing just fine, as if nothing ever happened. I was happy, but a little alarmed. This morning to my wifes horror, She found Bella, (poor thing) in the middle of the living room, pretty dried out. She jumped out AGAIN last night, and unfortunatley noonw was there to save her. She did share the tank with another terror, but other than a little cat and mouse play, they never really fought with eachother and generaly got along. What would cause a fish to vehemently want to jump out of the tank? I mean, there is only about an inch of room in the back of the tank, and both times she made it out! I'm really upset by this! She was a gorgeous fish. RIP. What can I out in the back to hold the fish in? :-C I need to find some kind of netting I suppose.
