Catching the fry...URGENT
 
OK, so the mother that I have moved over to the birthing tank, is still pregnant, but now my main tank is teaming with fry...dont know why...anyway, the fish in the main tank are chasing the fry and have proberbly eaten quite a few already. What is the best way to CATCH the fry for moving into a dedicated fry tank? I have been tying for the better part of 2 hours now and maybe caught about 5 - 8 fry...

Please help?

try lowering the water in the tank.....................less water, less area to avoid the net...........Good luck!

I guess I could try that. I thought that maybe the were a little small for the net and I seem to have lost a fry through one of those net birthing things. I have been tying to suck them up with the tank vacuum thingy which seems to work when I can find them but thy are so quick.
