    12-15 Rummy nose would be ideal.

    Thanks man, that will be 1 shoal, and I'm gonna have another...you guys have made me a bit gun-shy on the hatchets with their habit of jumping out...how to do a water change when I'm worried about jumpers?

    I really think the concern with jumpers is more about when you aren't there.

    Some keep completely open tanks and I have heard of people finding their fish dead behind their tank stand or on the carpet in the morning after a night of sleep. If your tank is fully covered, the instances of a jumper would be really rare.

    I can't imagine a fish jumping out mid water change, but if it happened you are right there to pick that little boogie up off the floor, give him a rinse (in your tank water) and put him back in.

    Thanks CrunchyLeaf, that makes sense...I really like those little "boogies"...I want them as an upper level shoal

    There is a new LFS about 30 minutes from home that me and Mrs. Slap are gonna check out tomorrow!...hope they have some good stuff

    I think when you have species that are known jumpers just keep any opening as sealed off as possible, I use craft mesh to cover any spaces that are left open between filters, heaters & such. Lets face it, any fish can jump when startled and snails are notorious at finding openings to escape from. When doing water changes I always keep the lid closed as much as possible until the level has dropped enough where I feel comfortable to remove the lid and continue.

    Thanks for the pointers JudiJetson...the lid fully covers the tank, but there are small openings in the back plastic piece where the filter hoses are

    I am going to try using rubber washers to cover the area where the hoses will be. I saw some really large ones at Ace Hardware that I can adjust. The washer will fit around the hose (I will do a custom cut-out to match the hose diameter) and it will sit on the glass and the tank frame, covering any opening between the glass and the hoses. Don't know if it will work, but that's what I am going to try - I don't need any amano shrimp escaping!!!

    Just teach them t0 jump pr0perly (like the fish in JJ's avatar) and all will be fine, l0l.
    When in d0ubt read it until it makes sense, then read it again!

    Funny how none of mine seem to jump or escape. I wonder why....
