Aqua Medic Aquarium FISH TRAP.
It is often very difficult to catch an individual fish, especially in aquariums with a lot of rocky decoration such as reef tanks or aquariums for African cichlids without completely destroying the decorative aquascape. Aqua Medic Fish Trap is baited with food ans as soon as the desired fish has entered the trap the closing mechanism is simply released - by hand. The trap is constructed in such a way that it can be removed from the aquarium with the fish inside without it draining completely, indeed it remains half full. This method considerably reduces the stress on the fish.
Dimensions: approx. 10.5" x 6.75" x 6.75"

Part of what sucks about fish traps is that they mostly rest on the floor, taking up space, and are at the bottom of the tank where they are hard to reach. Not to mention, fish don’t necessarily hang out there unless the trap is baited. This trap however, is magnetically attached to the aquarium glass, so it can go anywhere that your fish expect the food to drop.
