Emergency Fry Trap
 
I thought I would post this up as some of you may find
it useful at some stage.
Take one ice cream carton, add some polystyrene for ballast and
you have a robust fry trap that floats on top of your tank.
Easy to feed fish in it and water changes are a blast.
handy thing to have if your fry tanks are full. :wink:

Ps. this is a short term option, but works very well.
