Use 2 nets. Get a 5-6 inch net and an 8-12 inch net (depending on tank size). If it's a small tank then use two x 5-6 inch nets.
Set the bigger net against the front glass and use the smaller net to slowly guide the fish to the bigger net. Then lift them out.

Thank you, i ended up taking the driftwood out as it was getting in my way, i was catching the danios because i read that they were coldwater and i had them in with Rams (My Bad). I didn't do any research on them which i regret because i had 6 and now I have 2.
