If you switch it off, do the fish stop swimming? :grin:
I thought they always did when the lights go out. "That's it guys, today's performance is over".

I have heard, if you wire these gadgets up the wrong way, the fish swim backwards. :dodgy2:

It’s not a massive gap but you’d be surprised how far harlequins jump!

It must of made it through the hole in the light 😂

I’m surprised they are still alive as they are at the top end of their lifespan (7+ years) and have been in water averaging 8.2 PH over the years.

A really frightening thought is when you find the Harlequin has managed to jump back into the main aquarium. 🤣
