    Thank you so much, I wanted to make the tank a little bit more natural for the apistos I have in there :)

    Very late to the thread, but I have to know... How do you remove the fry from that initial tank? It looks amazing, but I can't imagine swinging a net through there and trying to gather any fish. You must have a technique or trapping trick.

    As Darrel metioned, I used a bottle trap with live baby brine shrimp inside for some cases. I also used a 1/2'' siphon hose in some situations to siphon them out into a bucket with water in it already. Also a turkey baster with a wide spout also worked very well.
