My secret to catching fish in a reef tank 🐠

My favorite way to catch fish is via the Night Attack. I would either go in with a flash light (ideally red light – which I do not have), or simply turn on the tank light abruptly. While the fish are all disoriented, I would go in for the catch. Of course, this only works if the fish does not sleep in a rock crevice or in the sand, but this method has worked extremely well for me for the appropriate fish. For the other ones, I would try fish trap or other more extreme methods.

If you are interested in the shoulder-length (more like bicep-length) rubber gloves I used in the video, I got it from Amazon: (still working very well, I’d totally recommend it)
