      I use 2 or 3 nets at each of my currently running 4 tanks (solely for removing waste/debris). I usually just keep the nets standing up in buckets or plastic bowls, and leaning against a wall or tank stand (which doesn't looks so nice and they often fall or get knocked down).

      So I'm looking for better (efficient, looks decent and hygienic) ways to keep or hang my nets -- any suggestions or ideas (esp. with photo(s) on how you do this would be appreciated.

      Where do I keep my nets? I keep them in a black hole I guess because they always vanish.
      Now to be serious, you know how you can get a retractable chain like a retractable key chain? If you could get one for each net then somehow attatch each net to a keychain then attatch the key chains to something that will not move then you wouldn't ever have to worry about losing nets again,

      Thx Brian that's a good possible idea to consider. Maybe there's a serial fish net thief in your neighborhood lol.

      My tanks are in the basement, the laundry room is down there as well, so I hang them over the laundry sink

      Is he not world wide? I know that I'm not the only one that can never find their nets.

      I keep most of them in a crate, then just have one small one out to net kuhlis and rainbows out of buckets because they seem to love siphon pipes :eek:
      Another one lives in my Aquaclear because the ceramic bag broke and honestly, the net works just fine in its place.

      A useful thing is a bucket or whatever where you always have them.

      For sure Hendre, where would we be without the lowly, not so beautiful but ever-useful bucket! Whatever set-up I use will need to have buckets or maybe plastic flower tray below to catch any dripping water, I'm at least borderline OCD about water on the floor (maybe because our last house had nice hardwood floors so I'd always clean up even small drops quickly).

      Thx also for sharing krichardson, you got it nailed!

      About once a week anywhere from 1/10 to a gallon of water ends up on my carpet :/.
