Well i went out for an hour or so this afternoon and on of my reds decided to see if he could fly
. unlucky for him he couldn't and when i got home he was dead on the floor :sad: . i though that they would be fine for a little bit untill i had the money for a canopy but i guess i learned my lesson the hard way this time
. oh and just for another kick in the junk, he was my biggest.

I'm sorry to hear that :sad:
I lost one of mine that way too! Only difference, he was about 2" when he jumped out, and about 1" when I found him again (two months later
Thank god it didn't smell for some reason).

Do you have a picture of his teeth? I mean, you probably have touched his teeth, right? (I would
)

What a waste.
I had a baby arrowana that jumped out before.. thought it got eatten by my cichlids, until I found it stiff and shriveled when I decided to move the stand to the other side of the room. I have an extra acrylic sheet that I bought at Home Depot to cover up the back of the Barracuda tank, but I never knew P's would jump out. Sorry for your loss
and thanks for spread'in the word.

Thanks all, yea I touched his teeth they were noting big yet. I have 5 more and for my loss I have decided to fill the void of having my biggest original die that I have to buy 3 more the same size :biggrin: . So it works out for the best I guess. It's still a kick in the junk. I have a makeshift canopy now with some pieces of glass I found in my house until I get one for my bday in 2 weeks. Thanks again for your support it a rough time right now.

Thats sucks man. I lost 2 caribe that way, they jumped from the back by the filter there was only 2in room to get out. I didn't think they would jump out from such a small opening. Well lesson learned.

Sorry about the loss.
One time my little brother's african cichlid killed just about everything he had with it, so he moved it into a bucket before transferring tanks. Well, the fish didnt like the bucket, so he jumped out. And my dog didn't like the fish, so he ate him.
