It can be stressful...But I do it on my smaller tanks without any problems..It is important to make sure the temperature of the water you're adding is the same as the tank originally was..Too much of a difference and your fish can go into shock.Also accliminate him for a little bit before returning him into the tank with 100% water change.

yes, and if you have the cup he came in, using that to take him out of the tank instead of netting him will be a lot less stressful as well, and less risk of damaging fins

I've used a net a couple of times to keep from mixing in icky petstore water, and I feel so bad about it every time because they just look so sad flopping around in there >_<

i know! i used a net to put him into the tank, and it is sad, watching them flop, even though it takes like three seconds to put them in. :/ but the net i have is pretty good, because the holes are very, very small. but, i still plan on using the cup.

I can trick some of mine into swimming directly into the cup, lol. I'll kind of run my finger over to the cup, then poke near the back of it or behind it and they go in looking for food, lol
