I've already done the 50% lowering of water, with the two nets. These *insert expletive here" fish have figured out all they have to do is crowd themselves into the corners behind the driftwood and plants and wait for a perfectly timed jump and they have all escaped my two net method as they just go up and over. I've never seen anything like it.
The red LED flashlight I used at night, a few hours after the tank lights had been off. They were too smart for that move.
Today I will do as Inga did and buy a HUGE net. The two nets that I have, one is an adult size discus net so I certainly thought that one would have been big enough!
(Puntius Denisonii and Crossocheilus siamensis can jump and flip like nobody's business) I will take Lisa's advice and enlist the help of another set of hands.
amberjade: I'm 51(!) and my mom still does these things for me. She rocks!
lisa: The lack of close ups is due to failing of the camera battery, it's charging now.
1077: I've now uttered all those bad words too!
onefish: yep, thank god this isn't a saltwater tank or it would be a total breakdown, no question.
Jeaninel, kitten, Romad, Inga, Johnny..thanks for your kind comments.
