CATCHING FISH IN A REEF TANK
How can u catch a fish in a reef tank? im finding it nearly impossible without ripping the rocks out and taking the corals and anenomes out too
get a fishingpole
Be serious, Joe.:tongue:
It is really a problem, Dan. I used to have marine. Heaven knows I tore down my reef just to catch my damsels.
You need two nets in order to catch them. One should be small to reach areas blocked by live rocks. The big one will serve as trap.
It's best to catch the fish when they are inactive. Do it first thing in the morning.
If not, baiting them with food on the net will work but the chances seem low.
Like blue states it' hard. The way he stated is a good idea but you will only have about 1 good chance at it as the fish will catch on. That is the only problam with marine systems. Good luck. :D
I have hired a trap from my lfs Ã‚Â£25 but they give me Ã‚Â£20 back
I caught the bugger! but what i didnt realise is my lfs closes in about 15mins which i would never make it there in time..... :cry: I had to let him back out and knowing my luck i wont be able to catch him again tomorrow! haha :shock:
I was always wondering how those worked but now I see they work pretty good.
pretty much the same as this
put the food in the bottom wait till the fish dares to go in pull the string and the door closes on the exit easy! but make sure its the fish u want cos everyone tries to climb in it except the fish u want
Did you catch him again dan? Or are you going----http://www.fishforum.com/userpix/98_crazy_1.gif
