    Is there a trap I coudl build to easily catch these jerks? They were supposed to be a smaller species that doesn't prey on fish, well that is wrong as they have caught some of my gertrude rainbows. Looking to get them out asap without taking apart the tank again (if I have to, i will as I can always re-set it up.. or if Chris's 29 biocube is good, I could set that up.)

    LMK what you think.

    You could treat the tank with copper the rainbows will survive and the shrimps will die.

    but i got snails in there that I want to live, plus eggs/baby fish that have been hatching (and most likely getting eaten)
