Do the small dario dario fish jump? Are they okay to keep in a rimless tank?

Should be fine. I'm keeping D. hysginon in an open tank, and know of at least one person with D. dario in an open top with no problems. They mainly hang around a couple of inches off the substrate.

 

Make sure you have suitable small live foods for them though, they can be finicky eaters.

I've never noticed that they had any tendencies to jump either.

Thanks for the responses. I'm looking for a small fish that won't be as brutal to a shrimp population as my EBR's. These little guys will probably eat shrimplets but leave adults alone. I would actually appreciate them cutting down the number of offspring in my smaller tank.
