Type 1 silicone is better. Hot glue can "rot away" imo.

But hot glue will work as a temporary solution because I want to make a breeder net out of hot glue, Popsicle sticks(from a processed bag not from eaten Popsicles) and pantyhoes? Possible?

That could work as a temporary net. But you can't really see through pantyhose. Make sure there are no strands of glue hanging around or else the fish may try to eat it and get poisoned or something.

Very true. I think ill just stick with aquarium made nets. The glue contraption would be better for separating fish temporarily like grown fish for only a few days

So your goin with pre made nets and not a DIY? Yeah, the DIY net isn't that stable and could break apart when fish ram into its sides.

Lol. I know right. What are you planning to do with the net? Penn plax isn't that great at most products.

My lees net is holding my new born frys in a 5 gallon platy tank. My penn plax is holding 1 (soon to be joined by his 14 other brothers and sisters) peppermint platy about half a inch almost but the penn plax was just to separate the big ones from the small so they don't harm each other tell they get bigger to be put with their parents
