    Hey TASA
    Quick question I need to rescape my 3ft tank . My problem is I have ghost shrimp that have played eggs and there are over 10 babies plus the other 15 adults. It is difficult to see them in the tank . Is there a DIY trap I could make ?

    Feed them, then scoop them up when they are feeding.
    Not fool proof, as you can miss some, but it concentrates them in one spot.

    Agree with Pez. A couple food pellets gets the shrimps into one spot quite quickly. A thorough sweepover a couple of times and you should have them all. Obviously you do not want losses but they seem to be breeding alright so perhaps a loss or two won't matter in the long run. Sorry to put it that way..
