    Hi ppl!

    I got 2 dancing shrimp as a gift,but only afterwards realised that they chowing my zoa's.
    I need to catch them and drop them in my bro tank or in my sump.
    Whats the best way or luring them out from the LR and catching them?
    best to do with lights off or on?
    Use the half plastic coke bottle with what kindv bait in it?but im worried the fish will swim for it and chow it all up

    Need to get them out today still:wave2:

    Thnks

    Hi Maj - how about a fishing net, with bait in, that you put right in front of the rock work where the shrimps are?
