    I have more pistols again, and struggling to trap them, previously I had caught them with the coke bottle trap very quickly, moving rocks is not really an option, the shrimp/s are about 20mm long, I know it's not that big yet, but I want it out.

    I just wanted to see if any one has any other methods to get them out, besides coke bottle and a trigger in the tank.

    I caught it last night, I think there is only the one. The stupid thing was burrowing under a solitary rock in the front of the DT while the lights were on, while I was watching the tank. Surrounded the rock with nets, lifted the rock, BINGO!!!!!!
