Maybe if they are not happy, but in at least 5 planted tank without covers
(ranging from 10-125 U.S. gallons (40-500L), I have not had any jumpers.
Ironically, the one that I did loose was in my crowded 40gal which DOES have
a cover....but there is always a space if a fish wants to find it <g> and
this was one of my first from 1993  :-(  ....also one of my largest at 9cm
(TL):-((((( .
Otherwise, the only other SAEs that I have lost were from buckets during
transfering them among tanks. Do not leave these uncovered. THis is
something that SAE's defintitely DO NOT like.
