In Response To: netting suggestion (BB Wilcox)

THANKS! I have always loved the looks of these fish. I think I can manage to create some currents. And I think my new zipper loaches would enjoy a bit of excercise also. And, a disposable plastic cup - probably ought to be able to get a couple at our the next going away party at work :-)

Here is my return-the-tip- tip: keep a plastic coated playing card in your fish room. These are great for retrieving fish from the floor. Dribble a bit of water around the strandee and kind of slide it onto the card. No damage from squeezing the little guy, no roughtened areas on the body to admit bacteria.
