help with changing fry tanks

My kribs and fry are in my 55gl along with about 10 other fish.
and I would like to take the fry and parents out of the 55gl and put them in my 20gl. Any tips on getting the supper small fry out of the tank I was thinking of using my gravel vacuum with a fine net inside the tube. I don't want to stress them out by chasing them with my net. any tips on this subject would be great!

I would use a plain hose to siphon the fry out. You can adjust the flow by moving the receiving bucket, higher for less flow. Maybe while they are asleep, if necessary. Good luck.
