DSC03157.jpgmy collection method , a small castnet imo stresses out fish the least and is easier to maneuver in those small pools of water

I'm jealous. You can go to a near-by pond and find a better selection than most LFS here were I liveIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
