Not the peppermints I have had they were quick lil buggers! But yea I don't get it either if it's in your FUGE how hard can it be to catch it? Get a net ,move some stuff and viola! :scratch:Why not just use a net, they don't move very quickly...or am I missing something here?
grab it with your hand. If its just sitting still its more likely to be molting. If you want a DIY trap, grab a small poland spring bottle, cut off the top, glue the top upside down to the bottom of the bottle. Make sure the opening is wide enough for the little buggers. Then put some frozen mysis in the bottle and drop it in the sump. The shrimp will end up in there in no time. The peppermint shrimp that I had went in the trap withing 30 seconds. This is all if you are still having problems retrieving them by hand in your sump.Now one of them isn't moving at all, how do I know if he is molting or dead?
