 I  lost  my  biggest  frontosa  male(6  inch)  this  morning,  I  found  him  on  the  floor.  probably  had  jumped  out  some  time  during  the  night.
 How  many  have  you  have  experienced  the  same  ?
 This  thread  should  encourage  people  having  frontosa  to  keep  the  tank  top  covered.

 Sorry  for  your  loss,  mate.  
 I  ve  lost  an  Oscar  that  way.  I  suppose  all  fish  jump  at  times  which  is  why  alltanks  should  be  covered.

 Hi  Rahul,  sorry  to  hear  about  your  loss,  but  keeping  Fronts  without  a  cover  is  certainly  wating  for  this  kind  of  a  thing  to  happen.  I  remember  Madan  had  huge  Fronts  kept  in  his  8foot  tank  and  he  lost  all  of  them  as  they  jumped  out  one  after  the  other,  this  can  happen  due  to  internal  aggression  amongst  them  or  some  other  kind  of  disturbance,so  the  best  thing  to  do  is  to  keep  the  tank  covered  and  this  way  you  can  have  them  and  you  live  in  peace.

 Ahmed  i  had  6  frontosa  in  a  6x2x2  tank  so  its  not  a  problem  with  space,  I  think  its  better  that  you  cover  your  tank  too.

 I  had  witnessed  such  an  occurance  last  week  with  my  two  swordtails  jumping  out  in  the  night  through  a  3"  wide  slit  at  the  back  of  the  wooden  canopy.
 I  had  topped  up  the  tank  that  evening  and  the  water  was  upto  the  brim,  normally  I  leave  a  approx  1.5"  inch  gap  from  the  top  as  I  have  tiger  sharks  which  are  known  for  jumping  out.
 I  had  thought  that  I  would  take  out  some  water  in  the  morning,  which  I  eventually  did.  Just  wish  I  had  done  that  in  the  evening  itself.

 its  a  problem  with  all  the  fishes  if  you  are  going  to  fill  the  tank  to  the  brim  as  probability  of  them  jumping  out  is  very  much  possible...  Thumb Down

 Most  of  the  fishes  have  capability  to  jump  and  in  this  case  the  fronts  have  good  jumping  stats  and  death  due  same.So  pls  keep  your  covers  locked  at  all  times.

 Hi  Guys,
 
 
   here  is  my  sob  story.  I  hav  lost  6  frontosas  till  date.  All  jumped  out.  Usually  fronts  do  not  tend  to  jump  in  case  they  have  enough  hiding  space.  Generally  they  tend  to  stay  as  low  as  possible  in  the  tank.  Even  while  they  are  timid  or  get  agitated  seeing  some  new  face,  they  tend  to  usually  go  an  hide  and  not  jump.  Those  guys  popped  in  the  transition  period  while  I  was  moving  them  from  their  broken  4  feet  tank  to  the  6  footer  where  they  are  now.
