Try baiting a tall drinking glass with some food and placing in the tank near a rock so that the crab can get in. The crabs can't climb the smooth glass and will be trapped. Since they come out at night, trap em at night HTH.

I agree, That works for me. The crabs end up sitting in the bottom dumbfounded.

Then..... they get the free ride to my crab tank... just so happens that there is a peacock mantis living in that tank.

Mwahahahahaha! (cruel laughter)

Using the glass jar trick should work. Place some food in the bottom and tilt it up aganst the rock or something.

Hey snap - are there pics of that crab tank? Sounds cool. Keeping a mantis and feeding him live foods. Awesome!
