Suggestion of catching a coral banded shrimp

Oh I need to catch my shrimp so I can take him back to the store. Question is how do I do this? I rarely see him and I know he's not going to be easy to catch once I do see him. Anyone done this without tearing down the whole tank?

Rachel

why you getting rid of it??? Try a glass tipped on it's side with bait. I've read here it works with crabs not sure on shrimp.

I am trading him in on another kind of shrimp. I want to at least see my shrimp once in a blue moon and not have to wonder if it died.

How long have you had the shrimp? What fish do you currently have?

CBS likes to eat meaty food such as F1. Feed him with it ,and he'll come out often. Also, CBS come out mostly at night looking for food. So, i'm pretty sure you will see him more with the moonlight on.

Answer to your Q.
Get a fish net, and put some meaty foods in there. Put it in front of where the CBS is hiding. Let him come in for the food then you can net him out. Other people might do it differently, but this is how i get my shrimps out of my tank.

you could build a trap.

thats how I caught mine.

I used a small 1-1/2in x 3in pipe. then I cut a hole just a little smaller
than the pipe in a tupper ware container. then I just pressed the pipe into the container threw some food in it and capped it.

put the container in a spot by him and just wait.

its worked for me many times.



dont think the glass trick will work on a shrimp. they can walk and swim
I think the glass trick works on crabs because the glass is to smooth for them to climb out
