I was thinking of doing the same thing with my canister filter. That way I can keep going and going without fear of running out of water.

I'm getting my two military flashlights out now that have the red lenses. The wife and I are going hunting tonight.

So, how'd you fare last night? I realized that there's no way that i'm going to catch them like that. Mine measure about 1/8" x 1/16" at the most. After I had the light off for about 20 minutes last night, I turned it back on. Sure enough there was an isopod on my perc. I caught him, and dipped him in the FW that I had floating in a container in the tank. He was not too happy about that. Anyway, TWO fell off of him into the bath. They were off in about 3 seconds.

I was watching them in the container and they are FAST!! Think of mantis shrimp speed just scaled down. Considering their size, they really haul @$$ .....errr tail.

There weren't any on the other fish that I could see. Although I know that at least one more exists.

This morning there weren't any on the clowns, so today is a small victory.

Me: 2
Isopods: 0

80<

( 80< is my ASCII rendition of an isopod in case you were wondering )

Congrats, I had no luck last night. The only thing that I saw was 3 mantis shrimp and no pods. This morning the Tang didnt have any hanging off of him.

That makes 8 mantis in the batch of rock I got. unbelievable!!!!!

you've already pulled 5 out?!?!? That's nuts

I know of one in my tank, but right now i'm more concerned with the pods eating the fish. Besides, he's too small to hurt anyone anyways.

Well, one more down last night, and no more on the fish this morning. I think the freshwater dip is the best method of catching them. I'm hoping that I've got them all now.....

We'll see tonight in "Death to the Isopods, Part 3"

oh yeah, after catching them I get enjoyment out of putting the container in the microwave for a few minutes, but that's just me
