fish sedation

The original reference was to sedating a tank full of fish lightly for
catching them....but only because the tank was being torn down, so you
wouldn't be left trying to do water changes or charcoalling to remove the
remaining clove oil from the tank.  It wasn't to sedate them for transport.
Some water was drained from the tank and set aside for the fish, the tank
was then dosed lightly with eugenol,a nd the sluggish fish were easily
caught for and transferred to the buckets of tank water where they
recovered from anesthesia and were transported alert/aware/normally.
