Man ol petes. It took forever to catch 5 of them. They do not get tired. LOL

I moved them from the tank with plants and moved my featherfin in since he is a better algae eater. One of my angels got to picking on the loaches, too, so this was also a rescue mission.

I'd get them in the net and out they'd jump. I'd hate to try to catch one at 12 inches.

yeah i had to pick mine out of the tank with my hand. They don't feel so soft and pretty. lol. They have VERY rough skin. I knew that by looking at them but i didn't think that the skin was going to be that rough. lol. :D

To me, any kind of bottom feeders or dwellers are the hardest to catch for some reason. Corys, plecos, and ottos are all a pain in the butt!

hahahahaha....i know...exspecially my loach. it isn't too big and it likes to swim as fast as he can when he sees the net in the tank. lol.

lol, when i took my 55g down to make it a reef today my clowns cooperated surprisingly. i slowly moved the net under them and they didnt care.
