So I did this. It worked. Must have been quite a ride. I hope the stress doesn't kill him. He is back in the DT and swimming for now.

Thanks for the brain storming session!

Was there a reason that you didn't just grab it?

Umm, yes. It was in a center overflow with 2 pipes in the way in a tank that is against a wall and 24" deep on top of a 36" stand. I am a pretty big guy, but my arms aren't that long
