I found one the other day that had managed to get from my floating plants to the edge of the tank. Hadn't died, so I just flicked it back in. Water was fine, think it was just a freak thing.

Bad thing is I had a glass top. There's a small gap where the heater cord enters the tank, and I assume they found that. I previously had a couple of Amano shrimp find that gap and go for walks...
