You can take them out of the water but its best to lay them of a wet towel, your hands or the net. Never lay them on a dry surface you pretty much strip their slime coat off by doing tht.

That's a pictus cat.

The name of that "pictus" is on the tip of my tounge, I keep forgetting the name. It's between a four line "pictus" and a real pictus catfish
