    I am losing it again. I spent hours chasing and catching fish to put them in another tank. Hours later put them back in the original tank. Crazy!:;dk

    I couldnt catch one of the hasbrosus. Felt bad watching him trying to find his school. Stupid waste of time. LOL.
    I'm battling the urge to buy more fish. I'm broke.

    Have you tried using 2 nets?
  6. psalm18.2 Fishlore Legend Member

    No nets, just plastic jug and container.;)
    I dont have the right set up so not trying again. I'm thinking of starting a plant only dirted tank. A project to keep my mind off more fish. I have plants in the main tank that need trimming so will be free.:happy0034:

    LOL...I did that one time with my dwarf corries.......so Im there tooooo!!!!!!!

    Ah ok! lol
    Now when you say you're thinking of starting a plant only tank - does that mean you're converting a current tank, or buying another tank? Because if it's the latter - well, may I predict it won't be a lonely old plant only tank for long! lol

    I don't know how you catch any fish with a platic jug and container. I tried it once and I gave up and went and got a net. I congratulate you on your skill at using the container.:;hf

    Using your hand also works well with some of those faster schoolers XD. I can grab a 3lb tilapia out of 5ft of water with one hand.

    Now by plant only you mean, add the plants, find $5 on the sidewalk and add cherryshrimp. And then dwarf corys, and then pygmy rasboaras and then croaking gourami :p:p:p

    Indeed. Indeed

    Never used nets, always containers. The square ziplock ones work great.
    I started another thread on the dirted tank I have since started.

    I've done that before, it was a few years ago when I was too lazy to go out and get a net lol. Nets are very annoying when it comes to tanks with a curved front, the fish just slip through!

    Fish are just little buggers about the whole thing anyway. I have danios and guppies who all pile into the net as soon as it hits the water, and then every other species who run away as if I am trying to abduct them to some supposed alien planet. Or something. Such drama queens. I'd say the angels are the worst, but loaches ...loaches just excel at being ridiculously difficult to catch.

    IME it's okay to lose"IT" on occasion. No problem with that. But, finding "IT" again later is not so easily done. ;)

    Too funny. My zebras did swim in and out as if they were playing the game.

    True my friend, so true.
