Hi guys, I recently bought 3 chinese algae eaters which I mistaken them as siamese algae eaters.

As the tank is scaped with a height of 2.5ft, I personally find it quite impossible to catch them without removing the hardscape. Is there another way to do this in a safer manner? I intend to transfer them over to another tank with bigger fishes with less scaping involved.

Any advice is greatly appreciated. Cheers!
