just found the forum

My wife and I have a 93 gallon and a 10 gallon DT. Like any newbie we were a little impatient. we have had our 10 gallon for about a year and everything went great. So we bought the 93 gallon on craigslist. It was great for about 2 months. Then a friend was tearing apart a 120 that crashed and we decided to rescue a few corals and fish from his tank. We were not smart enough to setup a QT and now we are fighting a battle of ich..........
I have the hospital tank setup hyposalinity, and have put three fish in it......I have 8 more fish to go...please spare me the you should have advice and wish me luck!

Any advice on catching fish from a deep DT would be appriciated.......
I have tried the following:
catch them at night
catch them in a trap
catch them while feeding

Things to try:
hook and bait
startling with a flashlight when it is dark

For catching difficult fish, one trick I was told is to hang a fish net inside your tank, and place the food for the fish inside the net. After a couple days when the fish gets used to eating from the net just scoop him up in the middle of dinner.

I will try the net with food in it, but that is a lot like the fish trap method I have already tried.
