I tried the coke bottle and caught both of my skunk shrimp, no crabs. I sucked one up with a syphon hose. Two of them I ripped the rock they were on out of my tank and put it in a bowl of water. I took a skewer for kebabs and used it to knock them off of the rock into the bowl of water. I have about 3 more I think that need to come out (red ones) and two or three white ones (?!) that look just like the red/emeralds. I haven't figure out if those are staying or going yet, but if I can get them off the rock they're going into the QT
also! I tried luring one off the rock with a piece of nori stuck to that skewer but he was well gripped on the rock and didn't want to leave it. Maybe putting the nori end of the skewer into a small glass would work. I may try that tonight. I'll let you know how I make out. I haven't figured out what to do with these buggers for the long term yet. Maybe that refugium I'm planning!
