getting tilapia out of a pond
I accidentally caught a young tilapia in my goldfish tank yesterday (I was aiming for a young goldie).
I think the baby tilapia may have been moved in with a group of mosquito fish, and I'm worried there are more; I don't want adult tilapia in there eating the baby goldies.
The tank is about 40" high, holds about 4000 gallons and visibility is only about a foot, so it's hard to find fish, much less catch them.
Any suggestions on getting rid of the tilapia? Do I have to empty the tank? Yikes! We're on water catchment, and it would take a pretty good storm to refill the tank.
Maybe I should concentrate on catching the goldfish, moving them to another tank, then empty this tank to get rid of the tilapia.
Any magical solutions?
