Yeah, I've heard a few of those, but never had one out of the tank or even luckily into the filter! My cory always goes for air and I often hear little splashes, but when a full grown pleco jumps, it does startle me and I have to take a closer look.

I have had though, a crayfish that just disappeared before. It was actually two weeks before we moved and he was gone from my 10 gal tank. I looked around didn't find him and when we moved out, no corpse.

Same thing happened to my dragon fish. He was gone, looked around all over near and under the tank, then we moved about 5 months later and no corpse.

if i turn the light on they go for it.) the big ones will pop out and hit the glass. i think its better to leave light off when its night or turn on the ceiling light beforehand for a while, ... although its unusually interesting to see 4 or 5 making runs up to the surface.....

My 8 inch pleco goes to the top of the water just to get some oxygen every once in a while but no jumping or n e thing like that. Thats pretty wild right there.
