Default Price to pay

Few days back, my favourite dragon jump out of tank in the middle of the night. When discovered, tried to save it but he did not make it.

This morning, one of my prize winner fancy jump into my prize winner grizzle. Did not manage to detect on time. In the end, the grizzle got injuried all over and torn up by the fancy. The fancy also suffered some fin tear.

That's the price to pay for not covering my tanks. Super heart pain...

Lesson learnt. Reduce your water abit and partially cover your tanks. Just move on ...

bettas only jumped out due to discomfort of the water condition they are in , i never had problems of bettas jumping out , without covering it and i dont use ktp for normal fishes only sick fishes and breeders after spawning

Sorry to hear your unfortunate incident involving not one but 3 bettas, resulting in 1 death.

I have offered advise before to other betta hobbyists always to do something to prevent this disaster awaiting to happen.

Hopefully other new keepers will take note to safeguard their precious fish....
