Nyos Floating Fish Trap for catching fish with relative ease from freshwater or saltwater aquariums. Ever had to get a fish out of a tank but there seems no way other than stripping the tank? Well there has been fish traps on the market for several years no. They all follow the same basic design which is usually a dropping door much like a portcullis. Now we must admit that we have, and customers also have had great success with these. However, many times that after waiting with great patience for you quarry to enter the door fails to drop. Usually with a fish if it survives a failed attempt to trap it revisiting the trap will take some time.

The Nyos Floating Fish Trap has no moving parts to jam.

The Nyos trap works in a different way. The trap is designed so that once your target enters you just pull away the securing magnet. Then the Nyos Floating Fish Trap quickly flips and floats to the surface. The trap has a buoyant ring around the entrance so once released it quickly points upwards and heads to the water surface trapping the fish.

How to use the Nyos Floating Fish Trap.

To use simply bait the trap with some fish food any will do but something heavier works best. We find that food such as Easy Reefs Masstick or JBL Tabis works well as it stays in place better. However frozen food will also work bigger Mysis rather than brine shrimp. Then all you do is wait until the target fish enters, quickly remove the magnet and the celebrate. You will not believe how easily catching fish with the Nyos Floating Fish Trap is until you try it and you can get the kids involved.

The trap may seem a bit pricey but not when compared to stripping down a tank or the damage a naughty fish can do to corals.
