cool, how does it work?
It was designed with such an intention that seed shrimp can only be allowed to enter from the right based on my trap assembly. The first 2 nettings on the right are of same size and slightly smaller in size as compared to the seed shrimp. Seed shrimps will find its way to the trap where food is placed. If you observe carefully enough, there is a fishing line attached to the right for retrieving the whole trap assembly. The left netting is much smaller as compared to the other two. So, when the trap is retrieved, it will be tilted to upright position. The fine netting will prevent the seed shrimp from escaping the trap. Placement of trap is also important. The water current must flow from left to right so that the seed shrimps will then enter from the right instead of left due to the yummy food taste. To make the catching more effective, the right opening should be placed slightly below the soil. This will aid the seed shrimps to get into the trap.

Great idea and pics there. Like a baby lobster pot.
Haha thanks man! seed shrimp get irritating beyond a certain number. It's great to have a trap for them!
i think you smart person for thinking such things. what to do with "seed shrimp" after catch? move to new tank? how to catch big size one?
great idea, i hate these guys, i think they were attacking and killing my freshly molted cherries, the only way i could get rid of all of them was to transfer my cherries to another tank, and then empty the infested tank and let it dry so they all die
