Need trap for catching fry!

Recommended Posts

I have constant explosions of neolamprologus multifasciatus shell dweller fry, so much so that the multies are constantly threatening to overload their tank!

I have recently decided to grow out the fry in another tank, but they are so darn hard to catch! They don't really go hide in the shells at fry size, but they hide under everything, and they're too strong to be siphoned out; I have to completely destroy a heavily planted tank to get them out!

So I thought I might try a trap. Has anyone got a favorite trap for wily fry? They are not extra-small when I'm ready to pull them out, maybe just under 1/4" in total length.

Lots of DIY and other options online, but I thought I'd ask this group.
