I prefer to keep the male out of the net. He is a big time jumper (he nearly died once and has been out of the tank at least four or five times) and I think he would react worse to being put in the net than the female.
He has been in a net ages ago when I was integrating him back in with his juvenile offspring and he did not like it very much.
I was talking about a net in the tank. It's just I have had this fish jump out of what I thought was a jump-proof tank so I am a little wary haha.
I was carrying him upstairs in a bucket once, and just as I had finished warning him to stay in the bucket for what is about a ten second journey, he decides to jump out. Because there were renovations going on, of course he flops over into a pile of sawdust.
