What's the easiest way, you guys have come across, to do a water change with tons of tiny fry in the tank?

to just suck em all up and get it over with then go on as normal. that aside use a devider, remove the fry if old enough or wait till you can, you can use a nylon boot over the intake. I prefer skin tone panty hoses :whistle: . .but think any will work.

Other i am sure will have a better ideas than me.

I siphon into buckets and return any fry back to the tank. Use your gravel vac tube and when you see a fry in it pinch the siphon and let the fry escape.

I used my gravel vac into a 5 gal bucket to clean the tank (no fry), then I used a larger hose to drain the tank. Refilled as normal with prime water conditioner. If I lost any fry I was not aware of it. Are these Oscar fry or other?
