Catching a cleaner shrimp...

Hi all, I have a cleaner shrimp that has gotten too large for my tank. I have been trying to catch him for several weeks, but can't. Does anyone know any tricks? Thanks in advance...Julie.

Tie a big chunk of fresh fish (raw, no seasoning) or a piece of shirmp in the bottom of a large net and sit back for a few minutes or hour maybe and let him get comfortable. let his nature do him in.

P.S. never tried it though

For me, I can't put my hand in the tank without my Cleaners jumping on to clean. Have you tried that yet?

Good luck!
