trapped fish.. help.

ok, I have my yellow lab fry right now in a 12g nano cube.. and unfortunately two of them have managed to get to the back where the filter setup is. sadly I have yet to find a way to get them out. the baffled sections are too small to fit a net in (even the smallest of nets), tried using measuring cups/spoons to get them out..

the good thing is that they've stayed in the first section and away from the return pump..

any ideas on getting them out without hurting them ?

thanks,
thane

could you turn off the filter, then try prodding at them with like, a popsicle stick, and hope they swim back to the main section?

well they arent getting sucked into the filter or anything, they are just sitting back there they dont seem to be in any danger at all, but i'd like to get them out.

Just scare them out of there with something long and small. I would use a metal coat hanger and st8 it up.

Can you take the cover off and tipp it over dumping them out?

Or try to catch them with fishing line and the pull it out when you got them.
