When I was around 4 years old, I got 3 goldfish. About a year passed and 1 died. A couple months later, the 2nd one died, leaving me with only one. Immediately after the 2nd one died, the remaining gold fish became very slow moving, not eating much... depressed? I came home one day and found him out of the tank on the floor, I didn't even think they were capable of jumping out of the tank. I tried putting him back in the tank, but he wouldn't move. I was literally hanging him above the toilet (Don't worry, I don't flush dead fish anymore) and I saw his gills moving. I put him back in the tank and after a while he was moving around. 2 more times he jumped out of the tank, but luckily I was there and put him back in quickly. Unfortunately, the fourth time I was too late and he was a goner. No idea why he was jumping out until thinking about it later on and wondering... could it be possible he was depressed and actually tried to kill himself?
I know it's a little far fetched... but who knows?
