After a million hours of Otto-chasing, my fellow employees and I discovered the secret. We would chase the Otto into a corner and then gently, gently physically cup our fingers over them and pick them up through the net. Once he's in the net, you're gold! Takes five seconds that way! Also works for larger plecos though they are much faster. But be veeeery gentle. No squishing!

I agree that african cichlids are THE WORST. Sooo fast! One time I had to pull all the ornaments out of a tank (at the store) and use a complicated net system. Though those were my early days and maybe I was still learning the ropes. Yeah, we'll say that ;)

i still usually pull at the orniments out

b/c we either have VERY VERY tiny african ciclids that can go around them easier or we have REALLY large ornaments that take up so much room you have to remove your net from the tank just to put it on the other side lol

buenos ares tetras are also pretty difficult
