I consider them a great free addition to my clean up crew, so I have never used the traps.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

Might have to grab that 6 inch one at nite sometime. Just to feel better that there's nothing that big uninvited to your tank. I don't mind seeing them in tank either, but I haven't seen anything larger than a couple inches.

6" might bother me too. Nite time. Long tweezer type underwater thingies!
