$1.00 Fish Trap


Recommended Posts

I want to get some Corys out of my deep planted tank. Theres no way I'll ever get them with a net. 

I thought of a traditional minnow trap but wanted something easier. A one dollar flavored water from Dollar Tree is my solution. I think these are better than other 2 liters bottles because they're cheaper so the plastic is thinner and easier to cut. 

I cut the neck of the bottle off, inverted it, stuck it inside, and used a soldering iron to make a bunch of holes about half way up the bottle. I didn't put any holes on the bottom so that when you lift the trap out, there will still be water in the trap for the fish.
