Transfering Pleco and Catfish
 
I have three 6" plecos in my 55Gallon tank. I am upgrading to a 125Gal tonight and looking for ideas on how to transfer them. I rather not use the net because the barbs can get caught but I don't know what other choice I have.

I have used a large cup with some success. Use net or your hand to drive them into the cup. Works best if all decorations are out of the way. Good Luck . :)

I'd recommend using a net to chase them into a cup- the net is easier to maneuver, but obviously the cup is safer for them.
