    I have a pair of true perculas. The female has been a jumper for YEARS! She has only hit the floor twice (just after someone gets home). Normally she ends up in the rear compartments of the tank. This last time she jumped, I figured I would just leave her back there (plenty of room to...

    is it normal for a six line wrasse to jump out of a tank? I came home from work today to find my six line laying on the carpet dead. I didn't think they were jumpers? What other fish are prone to do this?
