how to catch kribs fry?

I have a batch of 1 month old Kribensis fry and would like to catch them to put them in a tank of their own without parents so that I could breed them again. What is the best way to catch them? I have 2 large driftwood one of them have their nest so i do not want to touch that if possible also i have a sandy gravel.
Any tips please?

a rearing tank wouldn't be much better?

What size tank are the parents and fry in at the moment? I would probably lower the water level and use two nets, one net to chase the fry into the other net.

60 litre tank. was going to give them a 30 litre tank just for themselves around 40 in total of about 1cm each.

gently syphoning them out works great. Thats what I did with my ram fry.

what do you mean by gently? You cannot siphon gently you just siphon.
