Fish Nets

An aquarium fish net is a basic, but important, tool for the aquarist. Keep a small and large fish net on hand for regular and emergency use.

Since fish transport water is filled with waste, and possibly parasites, it is best not to put the transport water in your tank. A fish net will help transfer the acclimated fish from the bucket or quarantine tank to the aquarium. A fish tank net also helps remove fish from the tank for treatment in a hospital tank. Having multiple fish nets is useful, because a small fish net can reach places a large fish net can’t. Also, using two nets can help direct the fish.

Do be careful when using a fish net. It is easy for a fish’s fins or other parts to get trapped in the fine netting.
