The majority of the time, any fish that can jump out of water will really only do so when it is frightened.

Unless they are considered 'escape artists'. These fish have a natural innate ability to find their way out of confinement, in which case it is crucial to employ a tight-fitting lid with no escape routes.

Good luck.

Tanks: 40 gal FW setup, 10 gal Reef tank.
