Yesterday my oldest maxima clam looked funny, its siphon was gaping open, mantle retracted and not reactive to tapping - it was dead. I took it out, dissected it and found 3x 2 inch bristle worms eating away inside. This clam was vibrantly health previously and doubled in size since I got her 12months ago; it was buried in the sand up to the mantle. I know bristle worms are great detrivours, but I have many other clams, which are now in QT. So at midnight I sneaked up to the tank and shined my red light army-surpus flashight in the rocks and I saw lots of them, some as long a 5+ inches. I need to get them out. My LFSs agree with me.
I already have a 6-line wrasse, be he is asleep at night. I do not want more crabs or shrimp.
What traps have worked for people before and for how long did they use them. My LFS
lent me the coralife trap that comes with bait. They, showed me to make the trap with a plastic bottle, saran wrap and a "x" slashed in the opening. They told me about the panty hose trap... I am ready to blanket the tank with 100 traps if that is what it takes.
