How to catch fry?

Do I just use a net? or a shrimp? or would it be best to use a cup?

The Fry are 5 weeks old.

my mom uses a big net and catches them against the glass.. mind you that is for guppies and platies. The small nets(unless for BBS) have too big of holes and they slip through haha

I use a fine mesh net to catch fry...be sure and wet the net first......a well soaked or wet net can help prevent scale/fin damage due to the dry net sticking/adhering to their body....
