+1 After trying to catch 3 SAE in a heavily planted 75 gallon this is by far the best method. Throw some food in there and overnight you'll catch your whole fish population.

Substrate Depth in a Nano

I know the optimal depth in normal sized tanks is 2-3" but how about nanos does it change at all? 3" seems a bit much in mine currently.

I have a finnex 8g (16 x 10 x 12)
