hey sam, I've had mine for about 6 months and they are a little skittish during "tank fiddling" but they haven't jumped. I do have a closed top though so opportunities are limited when not fiddling.

I don't think they are well-known for jumping a lot or anything, but all fish are naturally scared for some time when added to a new tank. I would lower the water level slightly if you can until they've calmed down. :)

i seem to have a problem in this tank. i am down to 2 red eye tetra and 2 SAEs from 5 of each :?

i have moved them now as its really annoying me. i hate killing fish. i tested the water and all is normal. even had no co2 in and added an airstone.

any ideas????

Is it in a really busy area of the house or something and are there hiding places for the fish?

That's the only sort of thing I can think of if all else seems fine.
