Be careful! Mine in a rimless tank would climb up & over to drop onto the wood floor. It sounded like a ping pong ball. My cue to go pick it up & put it back. In a rimmed tank that might not be as much of a problem. They need an inch or 2 above the water line to lay eggs.

My tank is rimmed but it still climbed out and went 3 rooms away and stopped infront of the fridge. Hum... guess it was hungry.

LOL, jake. You always have interesting critters...now if it opened the fridge... :eek:

Kidding aside, they have a "trapdoor" that can help keep them from drying out from "extra-tank adventures". Always assume they'll recover & put them back. Observe for a few days before giving up.
