well i left the trap in there for 4 days now and nothing happened.. luckily just before i left i saw him at the top wedged in by my uv sterilized and i snagged him. YAY.!!! thanks for all your help.. but my wrasse kept getting into the trap and finding a way back out. HMM smart guy i guess...
I just borrowed this trap from Mediahound. It is AWSOME! I caught my 3 pesky green damsels and a mean blue fin pygmy angel. Didn't take long. Just need a little patience. I threw all their favorite foods in there and they could not resist.
Tough issue to deal with, glad you got it resolved so easily. I unfortunately havent had that kinda luck. Probably has a lot to do with why I have mainly corals and few fish if any in many of my tanks. The fish are cool and very colorful but Corals are just as colorful and less headaches aside from being my true additction. Corals are easier to "catch" too!
Are you ready.......... I'll tell you all my sure fire secret to catching all the fish in your tank.
After your tank lights go off. Turn them on after about 4 hours. All your fish will be asleep and they will stay asleep even after you turn the lights back on. You can even hand catch them, its like taking candy from a baby. Probably easier.
When I was breaking down my 180 a few years back I used this method and caught over 30 fish in under half an hour.
According to me, the best way to catch mandarin goby fish is that provide the favorite food to fish, so fish can comes on the top and you can catch that fish with help of net quickly. You can also use the large container to catch the fish.
