I tried a couple of different ways to try to get that one fish out, but I had to stop because I thought it was seriously stressing out the fish. If this is in fact Ich, I don't want it to spread by stressing out the others :(
So how do I catch a single fish? I tried the bottle method...I tried a dual net method...I tried leaving the net in for a while, then keeping it at mid-level while feeding hoping to catch it when it came to eat. But it'd grab a piece of food and dart off when I tried to catch it.
you have to be nice and say please when you want him to go in the net.
Im just kidding it is almost impossible but once I managed to get one out by removing the hood and waiting patiently for him to stay still at the surface. I did it in a heartbeat.
do be careful not to hurt him or stress them out too much okay?:)
