Fish Trap Request

Recommended Posts

perk73   

Well, I seem to have a killer Four Striped Damsel. He was bought to see if the fish from the lfs was not the culprit for some other fish that didn't make it. He was a cheap test run and turned out be pretty bad ass, possibly the killer of my Yellow Tang and Melanurus. 

Now that I know all is good with fish from the store.....I want to put in a few tangs, but refuse until this little booger is removed, and yes I've tried netting, but the jig is up and when he sees me he is gone into the rocks. 

I've seen the fish traps online, but can't find a place that is still selling them. Does anyone have one I can barrow? I have a Euro Braced tank, so the ones that hang on the side won't work.

FYI, anyone wants him and thinks they can catch him, have at it. If it wasn't for his aggressiveness he is a pretty cool little fish.

Take a soda bottle and cut the top off and then turn it in on itself so the mouth piece is in the inside. Put some shrimp in it and wedge it down in tank somewhere.

Caught.....I was wanting to take some of my live rock out to clean off some algae anyways, took the opportunity for no where to run to get the little shit. Any takers before I turn him into a lfs? Unless Mike will take him back?
