Sorry to hear about your Jack Dempsey. Have you tried looking on the floor, perhaps behind the tank? I've had one jump out before.

that sucks..... those guys arent cheap -_- you would be suprised what oscars can eat at that size, try sticking just the tip of your finger into the surface of the water and hold it there for about 2 mins and youll love what happens!
