I'm trying to catch a crab that's living in my largest piece of LR
. Dipping isn't an option because it's so large and has a lot of life I don.t want to harm.
For the past few nights, I've put a tilted glass with sinkable food in the bottom into the tank. No dice. I tried scallops packed into a plastic bottle cap as bait, but they still float.
How long do people find it takes to catch the crab? Do you leave the trap in constantly until it works? Wouldn't that leak a like of nitrates into the system?
I really want this crab gone before I add any other livestock. This guy already knocked off my cleaner shrimp.
