Peppermint shrimpstuff

I need to get my peppermint shrimp out of my rank. He is eating my coral and it is very hard to catch him. Anything I can do to lure him out or maybe exterminate him! I need help fast

I've never had luck with peppermints and coral. Only thing I could offer is using two nets. One in front and one behind.

Does he clean your hand when you put it in there? Maybe grab it?

Cut the top part off a plastic PPP bottle. Invert and glue, staple or sew the top inside. Then put some sand into it for weight and some fish food. Put it back into the tank on its side overnight. I put mine so the opening was pointing at a hole in the rocks. Shrimp should find its way in overnight.
