EMERGENCY. Best (quickest) way to catch skunks!!

Posted By: Elspeth

I need to remove 5 tiny skunk loaches from a 120 U.S. gallon tank as soon as possible, preferably yesterday. The little *bleep*s are hiding very effectively. They are such small fish in such a big tank with plenty of room to run from the net.

I can remove plants and furniture and will if necessary. Wondering if there are any "tricks" I can use to make this any easier. Would a minnow trap be a bad idea? (I could then sort them out without so much running room, I'm thinking.)

Help.

Please.

My new mantra: Listen to Dr. Momfish. Read Loaches Online before putting any loach in any tank. Listen to Dr. Momfish. Do not put skunk loaches in with dojo loaches. Listen to Dr. Momfish...
