I think my firefish has suicidal tendencies.
This oke just keeps on jumping out the tank!!!!
Last night while feeding he did a Evil Knieval out the tank aiming perfectly for the little gap I made in the cover to feed through. (Oh yes I was busy feeding him at the time.)
It seems like he does not want to be in the tank???
I know of other people who keep firefish without this problem.
Question I have is: Do I get rid of him or should I just live with it?

Firefish and many of the wrasses are well known carpet surfers, you need to keep them covered.

No the tank is covered, last night while I was feeding him he jumped again.
I had to open the cover (about 5cm x 5cm gap) to get the cyclops etc. in the tank.
He jumped through the gap over my shoulder onto the tiles.
It's like he waits for the first opportunity and then he does a flyer.

Not sure I could handle this every feeding time...
