    How ironic. I had just purchased an average sized frag of Xenia and a Green star polyp colony. I had the Xenia lodged into a nice spot in the rock. I kept checking on it to see how it was doing and I saw the an EMERALD picking at it. So I fight him off, I couldn't get to him where I could get him out yet. He had a death grip on the bottom of the Xenia. I finally got him off. I found another spot for the Xenia and then later last night I see the grab has ran off with him and drug him to the bottom of the rock. I again beat him off and relocated the Xenia. I tried to lure him out with some Krill and almost had him but ran out of time and had to run some errands.

    The Xenia had started to open back up and had a nice spot. My wife asks "wheres that other one"? I go to point it out to her AND ITS GONE. The dang crab ran off with it. I had JUST checked on it about 5 minutes prior. I can't find it anywhere. =(

    How do you guys trap/ get rid of things? I've got a couple hairy crabs I'd like to get at but it's impossible unless i took out every rock. Or marine worms! I'd LOVE to be able to get him out of the rock. Tried shrimp meat in pantyhose. Tried smashing them at lightening speed. they weren't havin it.

    Look at traps avail on the market and you should be able to diy better one yourself even with interchageable flexible openings.

    I used to lend mine out to other hobbyists. Diy'd using a Ghost House (transparent tube) OR small piece of gravel vacuum tube + one or two worm feeders (cone type). I believe i posted dwg of diy trap in this forum. Just cant remember when. Lmk if need further instruction as I have to type this time as my scanner is loaded onto PC yet. Used similar concept in larger scale to trap locally caught s/w fishes/inverts.
