After all the trouble of catching them,,I ended up returning them to the 80 gallon
Lowering the water level helped a bunch, and two nets also helped.Still took half an hour and numerous expletives.
LOL, and that was your original advice to me and the only reason I was successful. My chore was to catch nine Dennison barbs that were in a planted 100gl. It helps to really let lose with the expletives.
Good luck, Blaxicanlatino. We also hope you're feeling better today!
