Apprehending Unwanted Inhabitants

     I imagine everyone on this list has had the problem of catching fish 
     in a heavily planted tank.  A simple-headed solution to this just 
     worked for me. For several days I put the net in the tank during 
     feeding.  Everybody got used to its presence quickly, and it was then 
     easy to scoop out the desired fugitives while they were distracted by 
     the food.
