Too true - after all, water is a solvent. I was just thinking in terms of a temporary trap you can get away with it, and I have a one-track FW brain currently anyway! We'll see how long that lasts....

I agree, but I used it for about 8 hours or so and I think it was fine. I used a new weight each time.

What kind of crabs are you trying to catch?

PS. I hope you get those little buggers!

i have no idea what kind they are....i don't have a cam to post a pic and i really never get a good look at them

One is a brownish color and has hairy looking legs and body
one is a purple and white with hairy legs...looks nice actualy but i want coral and i dont know if he will treat it too kindly
I've seen the second one munching on hair algae, the first one i have never seen eat...he just sits there looking mean

I've got at least one red crab left to catch. I'm leaving the porcelain crab alone.

Caught a baby black tipped claw crab...they tend to grow into adult black tipped claw crabs so I am happy.

Three traps set, three crabs caught (2 the first night)
