You make a good point about being spooked - or it could have been aggressively chased by another fish.
Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
I'am pretty sure my male Swordtail jump out because he was being chased. My dad asked if I would take his male Swordtail and I did. This male is twice the size of the one I had in the tank that jumped out. And I only have 1 Female in there, and I'am guessing they may have been fighting over the female? I know you should have a ratio of around 3-1, but I don't have the room!
even being chased I doubt it would just find the little hole and jump trough it, when being chased they normally end up jumping in corners where they are stuck. I would try a heck of alot of floating plants! and I would closely check your water for ammonia spikes since fish will try to jump up of water when its toxic.
