Has anyone ever purchased a fish trap to catch fast fish in their tank?

    I want to rehome my giant danios to a different tank. They are friendly but they are freaking out my discus a little. These dudes are super fast. I've tried everything and cannot even catch their shadow.

    I saw this video of a person with a neat trap. Does anyone know where I can buy something like that?

    I just Google fish traps, and there were several online stores that sell them. You can also make one for yourself. Just get a plastic bottle, cut the top, put food in, put it back on inverted.

    Try using two nets - that helped me!

    Smaller nets have less drag too.

    A bigger one was very helpful though.

    Use a divider and herd them to one side of the tank.

    Thanks guys! I'm off to battle with my fleet school of giant danios :;swls

    I will try the two net method as you guys suggested and if it doesn't work then I might try a fish trap.
