Check out the advanced topic forum. There is a great thread there started by Anthony Calfo on different methods for catching fish.

My girlfriend works at the EPA any when they are doing tests on fish they give a slight shock to the water to stun them and they float to the top.

They do this because it is safe and effective.

I've used the fish trap by Aqua-Medic. A homemade version could easily be built. The trap works as long as you're trying to capture the most aggresive feeding fish, and you need to let them go hungry for a few days.

LOL, the thought of me standing above the tank with a ripped extention cord hanging from my hand and my wife walking into the room....lol I would get a stun from her for sure

I know this is not what you meant but very funny to me

Thanks for the big smile
Lucky

I saw this trap and I think I will try it first. he tang I'm after is the only one that will eat the food I feed, so he should be the only fish even interested. ( i hope)... I have always been kinda sad that none of the other fish would eat their veggie's but this could now be my advantage.
thanks for the support on this trap.
Lucky

You can DIY your own trap:

ha, this looks easy enough. I think I may try a 2 liter bottle though.
The target tang has way over grown my collection cup, and he is a rocket. so if he had to go deeper into a trap. I think I could beat him...lol
Thanks alot. Great (cheap) idea.

Lucky
