Mine works great for fish but the shrimp don't seem to fall for it, or they can just find their way out too easily.

strange crustacean in my shrimp tank (not seed shrimp)

Tons of scuds: no problems with my moss. Think that's one of those old saws that gets trotted out from time to time. Difficult to get rid of but an awesome addition to an aquarium ecosystem.
