Make sure to poke little holes around the bottle for water circulation. I had a fish suffocate overnight using that trap.

I was just going to post that. You can also use a 2 liter bottle for bigger fish.

Just keeping on keeping on....

After night might be possible what you say, but I don't put the bottle in tank on night. I stay close to the tank and watch it carefully. Never took me more than an hour.

I've used this method for a while as well. It works out great.

Like others have said, I reccommend using a 2L bottle and poking small holes throughout to better facilitate circulation in the trap.

I agree that small holes in the bottle are necessary for water circulation.
