Well not exactly :mrgreen: A fish trap made from an old BRS container, a piece of acrylic I had lying around, and some fishing line.

The Clownfish made it home right away.

4 days later, the Powder Blue finally went in :biggrin: with 2 friends that didn't join him for a trip to quarantine, and to his new larger home.

large enough so fish feel comfortable.

For some reason, for me, the pictures just show up as a big grey "minus sign". Is it a permissions issue?

01-20-2016, 05:35 PM
Same here.

Ditto. Can't see squat.

I'm curious to see this trap, sounds like it works well.

I just set up a simple trap another member posted, it works, you just have to go up with a net after the fish is in.

But yours sounds like the fish will actually be contained.

Pictures are hosted on Google photo, uploaded from my phone. It seemed to always work in the past. I'll try to fix it, I may have to share them somehow.

Does this work?

That's awesome.

The second set work. And yes I agree, great idea! I am in need of catching a fish out of my big tank and every attempt so far has been one of frustration. I have an older acrylic trap but it's really too big for the tank and it's not really transparent enough - he doesn't go into it because I think he sees it and he knows its nefarious purpose. So I think I might try this instead! :)

Wow, that is a great idea.

It's a little disturbing that all the photos I've linked to from Google Photos are no longer view-able. Hopefully it's just temporary.

Switching to Flickr now, and I'm even able to auto-upload at full resolution from my phone, and it's a lot more tweek-able.

Just for fun, here's another shot of the clowns hosting the fish trap.

Very smart idea

When you first posted I was able to see the pics.
Am unable to see them now, in the first post, like everyone else.
But your later posts are good.

Sometime shortly after I posted, all my Google Photo files were re-named. Very strange. All the photos in all my old posts don't show up any more.

Someone hacked you?

Doubt it. I can't even change the file names. I'm speculating it was something that happened in an upgrade or a server transfer. I'll likely never know.

Nice work Rob!!
