Anybody have any good tips on catching these guys. I have one that is about 3.5 inches long and I can't even get near the guy with the net. I do more damage on the aquascape than I do catching this guy.
This is EXACTLY how I do it...except for the nightime flashlight part [smilie=d:gpodio said:I use a couple nets too to catch them, I usually leave all the nets in the tank for an hour or so, this gets them used to them, then I chase them with a white brine shrimp net into the other nets, worked every time so far. But the key is not to chase them with it, lot's of patience and slowly "encourage" them towards the other nets. A little flake food may also help bring them up away from the aquascape. Night time might also be easier for you, could try to blind them with a flashlight.
Good luck, they are tricky if they catch on to what you are doing
