I can't leave him in the tank as the amount of water i would need to leave would make it too heavy. He spooks so easily, He's ok when I'm in there cleaning the tank, but show him a net and he goes crazy.
the only thing i can think of is puting him in the bath tub or a large plastic bucket with a bag liner. We have a large soft net, that my husband bought for fishing, but never caught any fish to use it.
The last time I moved him he was 6 ins, this is quite a difference, he's 5 times bigger and atleast 3 ins wide.
I'm still on the look out for a bigger tank !

Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks Jo

You could maybe use one of those plastic storage bins and fill it with some of the tank water.

+1 get a 40 gallon rubbermaid container and an air pump and put tank water and the fish in the rubbermaid do what you need to with the tank.

The rubbermade container was a great idea. Thanks !
But I finally talked hubby into a 300 gal, so will wait till its made and delivered, then move him straight into it.
That should be fun.
If I could drive him back to the amazons and set him free I would.
I just don't understand why they sell these fish so easily along with tetras ect, These are not aquarium fish.

Thanks again.
