    In the wild, bettas will jump. And no, I am not planning to keep bettas in small tanks any time. 5 gallons seems reasonable for any fish. tanks under five gallons should be considered broken.

    This has a little info on Jumping Bettas, it seems the main reasons are poor water quality, something like food, poor sleep schedule?, small space. Most Bettas apparently jump only 2-3 inches high. Many Betta keepers find their Bettas out of the water time and time again. two links I found are provided below. I'm not sure if these are good sources of information or not, but I hope you find what you're looking for!

    I have had 50+/- bettas and never had one jump. The smallest tank they should be in is a 5.5, but as with most fish bigger is better and I have had many happy bettas in my 75 gallon tanks. So long as the other fish aren't nippy and there isn't too much current (depending on how weighed down the betta is with those fins) they do just fine. That saying I usually put the king/plakat (ones with least amount of finnage) in my larger tanks; but 10+ gallons are the best for bettas. For the living in a doge neon comparison, I would actually compare it to us living in a closet under the stairs (2.5) vs having a room (5 gallon) or the whole house (many ++ gallons) to move around/live in. Living = all the components i.e. food in and out.

    I like to Highlight the text and drag it over to the search bar, sorry if they don't work. They're just links I found to back up betta jumping. Haven't the bettas jumped and hit the lid if you have these big tanks, they could jump and hit the lid. Have all of your tanks had lids where the bettas been in the tank?
