This thing is very smart, and very well made. It hasn’t worked yet, I blame the fish for being craftier than me, and the fact that I haven’t had enough time to really sit and try to catch it yet, but the item quality is great, and it’s very clever!

Good product, unfortunately not even this trap can out smart my very intelligent female Endler fish 🤣. She watched all the other fish go into the trap and just laughed at them. She has earned the right to stay. I give up! It was effective at catching the other Endlers and guppies, just not big mamma, she knows better 🤣.

Frequently asked questions
Fish Are Going Into The Trap, But Not My Target Fish. What Do I Do?
Sometimes the tank boss or other aggressive fish will need to be removed for trapping sessions. Extremely shy or cautious fish might be too intimidated by the frenzy.
I Have An Acrylic Tank. Will TankMatez Fish Traps Work On It Without Scratching?
We've never had a magnetic trap scratch any tanks but if it is a concern, our hydraulic traps have zero risk.
When Should I Release The Trap?
For best results, release the trap when target fish is nose in and downward if possible. This trick makes it challenging for target fish to find the exit upon release.
Why Not Just Use A Fish Net?
TankMatez developed our Bubble traps with help from some of the most knowledgeable marine biologists in the world. Chasing & catching fish with nets is stressful for not only the target fish but also for the whole tank community. Nets also damage fish's delicate protective slime coats & barbs. Once damaged, fish are significantly more vulnerable to illness and disease. Fish often die or get sick just from the stress caused from getting chased & caught with a net. When fish are captured in a TankMatez bubble trap, they are captured in a bubble of water and don't experience any water parameter changes. Most of the time they don't even realize that they are trapped. They are too busy eating their favorite food. Watch some videos of fish keeper
I Cannot Catch A Fish. What Do I Do?
Try feeding with the trap until your fish are comfortable with it before attempting to trap. Different types of fish will go in immediately while others are more skeptical. When fish are captured in a TankMatez bubble trap, they are captured in a bubble of water and don't experience any water parameter changes. Most of the time they don't even realize that they are trapped. They are too busy eating their favorite food.
