that would harm the fish, but how come you use so many nets? why do you net your fish so often?

Sorry Marco, I dont know about this one. The best thing I can tell you is to go to a local sporting goods store or fish and rod place. If Im correct, they have nets stronger than nylons for fishermans.. I dont knowif they'll fit into your fishtank though. LOL

But if all else fails.. try to use a metal strainer. (Good Luck trying to catch a fish on that one)

I once tried to catch a fish with a metal collinder, but it was not very good, in fact I think I damaged some scales form the fish, and I never caught it.

your simple household striner will work fin as long as you can get them away from decors and corner them in the glass to catch them... are you transferring them often?

have you tried this snow, I can promise you it does not work, you have several problems, including that the strainer has too much resistance in the water to catch the fish, if you did trap the fish between the glass and the strainer, how do you then get the strainer containing the fish out of the water?
also the solid hard surface of the strainer could cause damage to the side of the fish.
I did try to catch a fish with one of these once, and I will never even think about it again
