are you doing partial or total water changes? if it's a partial one, you might wanna leave him in and use a gravel vac to suction the water out, that way he never has to move and be messed about.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

Yes, I don't take my girls out at all.

I just vacuum underneath them.

I use Microbe Lift Special Blend and Nite Out when I water change so I never do. 100%.

Just 25 % or 50%.

Prana (deep blue/purple CT female) Fluval Spec 2

Qi (turquoise CT female) 5 g riparium

Vanilla Beast (Ivory apple snail diffusa), Watson and Crick (Amano shrimp), Tributary (Moss Ball aka AquaTribble) Fluval Spec V

Pond and ramshorn snails (so many!) 2.5 g

Mr. And Mrs. Smith (assassin snails) 0.5 QT tank

Leopard ramshorns 16oz NPT Mason Jar

I do both partial and full water change. When I do the 50% I leave him in the tank. I only take him out while doing the 100%. I don't have a gravel vac. I only have a 1.5 gallon tank, so I don't think it's worth it.

Right above all the threads in the upper left you should see a button that says "New Thread" It looks similar to the one you click when you post reply.

If anything you could use an air tube, after stirring the rocks use the thin tubing to suck up the debris :) cheaper than the gravel siphon and would not take up space :)

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.
