I'm trying to catch mine so I can take him to the LR store. I don't have the heart to kill it. But some zoos are missing, not saying he did it but I'll just have to start narrowing it down.

No luck with catching him, just some snails. I may take the rock out and see if I can flush him with saltwater.

The saltwater isn't gonna flush him out. You could try a turkey baster and some FW. Or some non flavored carbonated water.

I may do that and see what happens. I'll try to miss the mushrooms. Maybe I can see him on the rock and poke him out.

Can always use the Xterminator. Have caught several nasty crabs with mine. Place a nice smelly piece of raw shrimp at lights out. You may find him in the morning.
