You need to find the reason they are jumping. Do you have other fish in the tank? What size is it? How long has it been set up?
1. Zebra danios are very speedy swimmers and are known to jump.
2. They will do it more often if their tank is not large enough to give them good swimming space.
3. They may also do it if water conditions are not right, or poor.
4. Are they being harassed by other species?

I had the same problem, my little darling was jumping all the way from the tank to the coffee table :shock: Could not believe it at first to be honest. But yeah changing to a bigger tank did the trick for me :) But yea try all of these above, Im no expert just letting you know that worked for me. Hope you get it sorted!
