    Hi there, has anyone experienced that the dottyback jumps out of the tank.

    I have an open top, and want one, but I found this.

    Care: Easily cared for, they are great beginner fish. Will readily accept brine shrimp and meaty fares, but will also accept flake and dried foods. Hoods should be placed on tanks, as these fish are known jumpers. Very hardy species, and will tolerate fluctuating water qualities better than other species. Caves for hiding are preferred. Liverock decor should be abundant. Royal Dottybacks are very tolerant of small setups and variable conditions.

    cool looking fish but they do get a bit aggressive in smaller tanks. Ive had one and he unfortunately had to go. Ive heard of them being jumpers!

    I reckon any fish that gets spooked will jump, regardless of reputation....
