albertareef Posted January 19, 2009 Share Posted January 19, 2009 Anyone have any great ideas on how to trap a crab? I am thinking a baited "no exit" contraption of some sort but I'm sure someone on here has already been-there-done-that! So I'm checking out the tank last night after the lights went off and caught a brief glimpse of a large claw poking out from the rockwork. What the... I don't have anything with claws like that (he thinks naively)! After some persistent snooping around with flashlights, I discoverd I have what looks like an emerald crab on steriods but with a smoother darker carapice than most - at least it looks that way in the dark about a foot into the rockwork. This critter must be super catious because I haven't seen him in the year and a half since I moved the tank and haven't added any rock since then. I assume he grew in situ. Anyway, I don't really want him in there but, short of tearing the tank apart, am not sure how to get him out. It's always something...
