I have a number of the Fluval Ebi nets (I started out in my shrimp hobby by buying Fluval Ebi kits) and they have been fine, though I have had at least one "seize" on me where it wouldn't retract to extend anymore. I have also used brine shrimp nets as they are made of pretty gentle material. I think I am going to be picking up a 3D net as well, though. That "always open" looks like it would be fun to try. One other thing that I have learned, regardless of the net, it to cover the opening with the palm of my hand after I scoop them out. The more lively shrimp have given me a couple of close calls.
