Advice for catching fry?

I have about 10 molly fry in my tank, I promised 2-3 of the fry to my science teacher to raise for his class. But the fry are still quite small, is there a certain way I should go about catching them?

Just use a regular net, be gentle, and they'll be fine.

Brine shrimp nets are extra gentle for fry or delicate fish. You can also catch them directly into a catch box if you can maneuver it.

You can also if you don't have a catch box use a regular old cup and a net. I find catching them this way minimizes stress because they are never out of the water.
