Would it not be easier to wait until they are tads and then take them out?
Is it your Imis or the Bastis? Bastis you would not take out at all.

just the imi's this time around, I know better than to go poking around my bastis tank. :lol: I just wanted to try taking them out as they're in a very hard place to see and I'd like to keep an eye on development. I suppose I could always wait for the next accessible ones.

As delicate as these things are, I would be afraid that, good intentions or not, they would be destroyed very easy. Not worth trying to move in my opinion. Wait for the next one that they might lay on a leaf.

I had some intermedius that were evil like that, or stuck eggs in other areas of the tank I couldn't get to without worries of destroying the eggs. Luckily, I thought about this before hand... and set up the tank so that I could easily remove the broms :twisted: Basically I'd pull the broms (mounted on various things I could easily pull out of the tank) and dump them out into a rubbermaid or bucket Then I'd put the brom back, and fill up the axils with water. Made it a monthly deal, so I'd get tads of various sizes... simply put them into their own containers and raised them from there. Normally I'd let them morph in tank, but I was having issues catching the babies and just tried to get them before they morphed out.
