    I have done the emptying with a simple Bunnings tub and I can tell you, it's back breaking work, especially if you have lots of mulm which makes it almost impossible to get all shrimp out. I am guessing I got about 70% out but can't be sure.

    Square net is a must as agrubs pointed out. Otherwise fish are so difficult to catch. Especially the last one. But I usually lower the water level right down before I catch them. Lower to 95% and they can't run too much.

    Thanks guys.

    I have a big 30cm square net so that will be helpful.

    Any tips for acclimatising the fish to indoor life? I am going to shut down my CPD tub tonight. On the weekend I half filled their new fancy garage tank with tub water and one of the sponge filters. Is it as simple as filling with the rest of their tub water and chuck them in?

    They already seem to eat anything I throw in the tub, but I guess they will miss their live food from being outside.

    Garage tank sounds almost too fancy!

    Yeah just transfer them over as you planned.

    Maybe open the garage door during the weekend for the livefood to find their way into the tub....
