[Zbrafish] collecting blood from zebrafish

I tried recently to collect blood from adult zebrafish to measure some
coagulation parameters, but I failed to obtain more than 6 µl from a big,
old female. This was either with MS-222 or ice anesthesia. I collected the
blood with a 10µl tip, in the main dorsal blood vessel, after cutting the
tail of the anesthetized fish.
Could anyone advice me on how to obtain a larger blood volume (10 to 15 µL
would be fine)?
