Well, one of the Asian climbing perch did crawl out of the tank, got under the aquarium stand and was rattling around once. I thought the noise was the filter impeller. It was the fish bouncing around UNDER the tank. I put him back in the tank and he was fine. They use their spiny gill covers to crawl, not their pectoral fins.
