A testament to the Fish Corral

After going thru the ich outbreak 2 months ago, you'd think I learned my lesson. Well, the Heni I QT'd for 2 weeks and then added to the main came down with ich 2 days later. My advice: QT, QT, QT. And do it for 4 weeks minimum. From the 2 times this has happened to me, both the BHT and the Heni came down with ich after 2-3 weeks.

The thought of having to move the Heni, a YT and 2 clowns back into the QT made me want to jump off a bridge. Last time I had to do this, I had to pull most of the LR out just to catch the fish.

This time I had the Fish Corral. I could not believe how EZ it was to use it. I placed some flake and pellets inside the Corral and sunk it to the bottom. 5 mins. later, the Heni comes rolling in. Bam! One down. Next I shushed the clowns towards the Corral and one of the them went right in. Two doen. Two to go. The other clown went it minutes later. Last was the YT. He was the one I dreaded the most as he hunkers down into the LR and is very skittish. My wife moved the net on one side of the tank and the YT shot around the tank like a bat out of h*ll. All of a sudden, Bam! Right in the corral.

I swear the whole ordeal took less than 10 minutes with not one piece of LR disturbed.

5 stars for this product. Now onto 6 weeks of hypo....

If you do not want to spend $20 a empty clear 2 liter bottle will work too.

I actually had to do it one time when I first started this tank. I would rather not talk about it (Melissa either). I have since made a trap that is similar to the one in this post but does not have the short handle on it. The 2 liter bottle on a dowel rod also works well.
