Experiment

Postby Broggo » Sat Jul 21, 2012 12:35 pm

Every time I go near the left side of my tank all my fish dart that way thinking foods coming. The gap in my hood is there for food. But never when I'm at the right hand side.

This got me thinking.
Each time I feed them if I put my net in 10 secs before they might start to associate the net with food.
Making it easier to catch in the future. What's your thoughts?
Has anyone else tried this in the past?

Tried it and failed miserably. My way of catching now is whipping of the top when they come up for food.

Plunge the net in vertically really fast. You catch lots of fish but you just select the one you want.

I have tried the whole association thing like hanging the net in the tank for a while before trying to catch a fish.
The only thing I have succeeded in doing is proving the fish are cleverer than me.
You can guarentee the one you want to catch will be the one swimming in and out of the net until you step up to the tank.

Big net. Block off end of tank. All rocks out in that section then hand or net to waft the fish in. Or Clares idea. Or swear...
