My Betta jumped out today but I had a very strong lid and there was only a tiny hole that the Betta couldn’t fit through. Does anyone know how

You have to much water in that tank you should leave at least 1 inch of space between the water and the top

Next time you should not fill the water up that high because the can jump out especially if there is not a lot of area to jump over.

My betta jumped out as well and he by the time I noticed he was very far the from the tank and there was no trace of water where he had landed plus he was completely shriveled and dried. I put him back in the tank just out of sheer panic and about a minute later he flinched and then sunk!!!! He was gasping and very much alive. U should have tried putting him back in. About 10 minutes of struggling he was normal again.

it feels like there's too much water. Recommend leaving at least two inches of water so they can breath still

I had a fish and 3 jumped out, so I thought they where dead because they weren't moving, so I put it with my turtle (as food) and when I went to go check they were alive so I out then back in the tank

The first betta I got was a VERY fancy one. It was pure white and had very large flowing fins like a wedding dress. The next DAY.. I found it had jumped out of the tank! HOW!? The damn things barely ever move.. and yet they can jump out of a tank? I don't see how it is possible that betta could jump. That would be like trying to swim fully clothed. By the way.. screw bettas.. get skirt tetra glofish, angel fish, rams, and barbs.. Other types of freshwater fish die too easily or are too aggressive.

+John Roy Still, one death a month is showing something isn't right within the system, whether that's water parameters (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, PH, hardness/softness, chemicals etc) whether the fish species is actually suitable to those parameters, bullying, stress and overcrowding to name a few, but there's many more reasons too, a lot of ppl think its as easy as just putting fish in water no research needed which couldn't be further from the truth. A healthy aquatic ecosystem with no overcrowding you shouldn't be getting deaths at all unless its due to old age.

Just out of interest, what is your setup? (litres/gallons which ever metrics you use) how long has it been set up? did you cycle it? what species? and have you ever tested the water? water changes? how much? how often? live planted? substrate?

You don't have to answer if you think I'm being a little invasive, I'm just trying to help that's all. Kept tanks for many years and passed on my own experience and knowledge to my own sons of 11 and 13 years of age, youngest now keeps peacocks & Haps cichlids (he swapped species a few times and no doubt I'll end up with these cichlids bc he now wants freshwater puffers or discus) eldest keeps a community tank with a mixture of species (angels, cardinals/neons, sailfin platies/mollies, killifish, black skirts, red eyes, danios, clown and khuli loaches, corydoras which are spawning atm) along with a nursery tank for fry/eggs and a grow out tank successfully, haven't had any deaths in a long time apart from one suicide neon tetra a few weeks ago that jumped out.

+Donna What you said is pretty much exactly what I said. Bettas DO jump.. which surprised me. Some fish considered to be hardy are actually quite sensitive to water parameters.. in fact, what is good for one type of fish, is sometimes bad for another. I have VERY few deaths anymore. It seems like the less the tanks are fooled with, the happier the fish are. Also, over-feeding is the #1 cause of fish deaths. The so-called experts are often full of it. Anyway.. I have roughly 100 fish now.. and I now have about 1 death a month. I used to have about 1 death per DAY.

BTW, Bettas do jump, its a survival instinct. Wild Bettas jump out of puddles to get to cleaner, bigger rice paddies bc they cannot survive for more than a day or two in a puddle (they end up in puddles when water starts to evaporate in the paddies, this is the biggest misconception about bettas living in puddles, they don't, its through evaporation of their territory.

Other fish don't die easily, if you think that from experience then the problem is down to you. Some species of fish like neon tetra are really sensitive to water parameters, a slight ammonia spike, nitrates and nitrites, PH level, water hardness, chemicals/ toxins, metals all effect fish, some more than others. Then there's also not enough oxygen, aeration, filtration, heat that effects different fish, also stress which lowers their immune system leaving them susceptible to illness/disease which leads to death.

The fish you named are considered 'hardy' meaning they can take slight changes within their environment.

Most fish die through ignorance from lack of research NOT because of said species.

Is it really necessary to fill the whole tank with water? I usually leave some space so that my betta Mauve won't be able to jump. I have a 4 gallons tank though. Sorry for your little betta. Swim in peace.
