I had no luck with fish traps, regular nets, and etc. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands and make something that might possibly work. Let me tell you...this thing really does the trick.

The idea of this is to put it down in the tank opposite the front glass. I leave it in there for a few hours and let the fish get used to it. The fish just swim right by it without any problem. So, I just slowly grasped the handle and as soon as the fish I want passes by, I just push the net to the front glass, leaving the fish nowhere to go. This is the quickest, easiest way to catch fish :)

nice unless you have a tank filled with sps, fish trap has always worked for me and dont have to worry about net catching on anything or gills getting stuck in nets

All my corals are either on the rock or on the sand. I have no SPS yet cause my tank isn't ready for it yet. I have some corals that are on the sand...I just move it for a few hours and its all good :)

what material did you use, It's been 7 days and no luck with a fish trap.
Yeah fish traps are a joke to me.

All I used was a copper wire and I tore apart a giant mesh bag. I just punched holes with the wire and bent the corners. Then just make sure its stretched out just a little.

oh boy.first off never put copper in a tank second you should never trap a fish with a net.the fish have sensitive gills and scales.what fish did you need to catch and why.the best way to get a fish in a fish trap is very easy if you have a inquisitive fish.if food does not work use a red laser light at night.like a cat it will follow the light into the trap.if you cannot get the fish out and its life or death for your tank you need to get the rock out and catch it the right way.ive only had 1 fish i couldnt catch with the laser method and that was a stubborn pink face wrasse and since it wasnt life or death i left him in.your tank is pretty much empty so pulling some rock out would not have been that hard.if i purchase a fish and the LFS takes it out with a net i pass on buying the fish.

The fish was a sleeperhead goby. It made a mess, covered my corals and did an absolute sandstorm in my tank.

But the laser light lol I have to try that next time I want a fish out.

I'm telling you the fish is just fine and the trick was when it was right in the middle of the net, just push it down to the glass...obviously if ever, I will make a better one with different materials, but like I said, I needed that fish out........now
