Nets are available in a variety of sizes and desgins. Smaller nets are generally used for catching fry and little fish. The fine webbing in these nets is soft and similar in structure to cheesecloth . Small nets are also handy for scooping out uneaten food and suspended debris from the aquarium water.

Larger nets are usually used for capturing fish. Using two large nets to capture a goldfish is much easier than trying to do the job with only one. The pet can be coaxed into the ceter of one net by gently nudging it with the other.
