This TankMatez classic slider bubble fish trap is very easy to use. Put your fish's favorite food in the trap. Slide the bubble trap slowly back and forth to create bait swirl. When your target fish goes inside to get a bite. Pull hand piece and watch it float to the top of the surface. Minimal stress for you and your whole tank community. TankMatez saves you time, money and head aches.  Turn off pumps and power heads for best results. Strong currents will flush the bait out of the Bubble Trap.

Great trap!!!

The trap was awesome I only fed the fish through the trap. By the second day my bully was in there I tried 2 times to catch him with in 3 days and failed then on the fourth day I got him. Worked great just have to be patient. The only down fall is that it left a scratch on my tank which is not cool. Really ****** actually.... I’d say the bottom of the bowl needs to be sanded smooth so that doesn’t happen. Other then that it works.


Hi Chenzo, for just that reason, we have specifically tested our bubble trap materials. All materials used are softer than acrylic and glass. The only way we feel our trap can scratch glass or acrylic is if a piece of sand or gravel was trapped in between. So sorry about that. We've never heard of that happening before. We will look into our materials again. So glad you were able to catch the bully. Congratulations! :)

Works great!

I was a little skeptical at first, but after trying it I love it. The fish can be a good bit skittish around it when it first goes in, but after I left it in for a little while, they got used to it and stopped being so nervous. Once I put some food in, they couldn’t help but go in for it. Makes catching otherwise shy fish a very easy task once they’ve gotten used to having this in the tank!


Hi Cody, thank you so much for the review. Glad you got it all figured out. Cheers! :)

I have tried to catch fish in my tank many times. Besides for a few times getting lucky, I usually give up and just let them be bullies or destructive on my corals. Figured I order the tankmatez and see how it worked. Out of the box it was not near the quality I had expected. Cheap plastic bowl, plastic pull hook that broke the 1st time I pulled it and the magnet was barely strong enough to hold through my 3/4 glass even though I upgarded to the stronger magnet. I added a few new tangs and one of them was picking on one so bad it was about to die. Knew I had to get the bully out. I only took about 10 minutes and surprisingly the Powder Blue was in the bowl, pulled the magnet and blam, powder blue was in his own tank. Worked so good I figured I d try on the other 2 fish in my tank that were causing issues. Both were the tank bosses and were very skittish about going into the bowl, but after leaviing it in there for a few hours, baited it and bam got another one, few minutes later, bam got the 3rd one out. Easiest way to catvch fish in a tank. Great product. Just wish the quality was better.


Hi Mark, we are getting better with quality. All of our products are handmade and because of this, the quality is not always up to perfection as of yet. We sell our traps particularly for what they do (as you've witnessed) and not merely based on what they are made out of. We want our traps to be affordable for almost everyone-to upgrade to an even higher quality of materials would bump up the price significantly. All-in-all, we still consider this to be a positive review and we're so happy your issue has been solved and you've obtained victory using our products. Cheers, buddy! :)

Worked better than expected!

So I got this as a hail mary attempt due to rock work preventing me from capturing 2 fish that were causing issues in my tank. I put a little food in there and both went in to eat and were captured on the first try with very little stress.
