I've looked up on uk sites and asked my local shop owner , he is of same opinion as all who have commented that the ONLY way is to remove rock and catch the little devil ...

My latest trap( piece of mussel, inside bottle with top cut off and re-inserted) didn't catch anything.

I'm betting on a xanthid crab. They make a very similar clicking sound as they are burrowing into rock.

figured out what happened to my cleaner shrimp.

Caught my clown trigger last night eating one, he literally ate the entire thing.

you have a trigger in with invertebrates and you wondered what happened to them?
the trigger should have been your first suspect.

I do have a hermit who for some reason likes to tap his shell against the sides of the tank often at night, sometimes it sounds like a mini jack-hammer.

I've had triggers with inverts before and never had an issue, the cleaners really didn't do much cleaning anyways.

I fed my triggers with king crab legs for a treat. You could hear the crunching all over the house. Some are pretty invertebrate safe, but the clown isn't one if them.
