Okay, I just grew up with fish and the guy that sold them never used nets. He said they hurt the fins (bettas and other fish, like some cichlids he had). So, I put my hand in, after making sure they are very clean (no soap residue) and, cup my hands--they swim in. I leave my hand slightly closed until they settle in, then I move them to where they want to be. I also handfeed my bettas. Maybe I'm nuts--okay, so I am but, I just learned that nets can cause so much damage--and I didn't want to pay the money for the thai ones.
