Actually , I believe most any fish is capable of jumping out of a tank . Although , I was a bit surprised to see BN's listed !

The ones I listed I have found numerous body's of on the floor of my lfs. The tanks don't always get covered back up.
Or I have found several on the floor at my place........

The dojo loach was 6 feet away from the tank and the African butterfly's were 5 feet away......

Oh and eels!
Those will travel from tank to tank! Had one in QT at my lfs and in the morning he was 5 tanks away with fish missing from all the tanks in between! Put him back, 2 hours later he was in the filter. Put him back. Next morning he was on the floor on the other side of the room with a rubber band around his neck....... And this guy was over a foot long.....

My vote bettas! and black skirt tetras. They see something they think is an insect and they go flying out of the water. The Black Skirts I have seen jump over a foot out of a 55 gal tank catch a fly in the air and back in the water in a split second. Floating plants help block their view of anything above the water.
