WTF!? Fish jumping out of a tank?

Ever heard about suicidal fish? well I have them!
I just wonder how???? I have a 55 gal tank with a hood, there is an opening for a filter and heater but its not that big, so how the hell do them jump out?
this morning I found a 2nd dead fish on the floor... ew!

  • My Aunt's fish used to do that! LOL and they were big fish. I don't like fish due to the fact that they die so easily anyway and I hate the way they look dead... not that anything is pleasant looking dead.
