Catching a fish in reef tank


Recommended Posts

Is your damsel big? I DIY by cutting a mineral water bottle half and threw the top away, poke some holes at the bottom and put some small stones inside as weight.

Attached a string to the top part of the bottle, leave it inside tank for a while so that they get used to it.

After that drop some food into the bottle, once they swim in or close to the opening I just pull the bottle up with the string.

The holes will create a bit of a suction downwards when u pull up so the fish will end up in the bottle lol.
