Yes but very carefully!!!!!!!

I would get a soup spoon or something similar (nice big deep spoon) and use that to fish them out. prob the least nasty way to do it. They are very sensitve to pressue etc and syphoning/netting will prob kill them.

dont be surprised if you loose a few in the process Sad

fish are not as sensitivive to temp changes as people think. The old myth about letting the bag sit in the water to let the temp adjust is totally bogus. I would get a tupperware container and half fill it with water from the tank they are currently in. then spoon them into the container. Then, very slowly, add in water from their new tank. this will adjust them to the new water and temp. once the mixture of water in the container is more than 50% from the new tank then i would add them to the new tank, but again, very gently Smile

Good luck Smile

PostSubject: turkey baster   Sat Oct 16, 2010 12:37 pm

When I need to move fry around tanks and to fry savers,I use a turkey baster. I even use it on my L333 when they have been accidently kicked out of the cave by the male. Just hold it aboe the fry you want to pickup and then suck up. Its better than syhoning or netting.
