I finally managed to trap him by using two nets with some food in one. It took a while but nothing is worse that an agitated tank. I wanted to give him a burial at sea with a one flush salute but the better half of me prevailed and a compassionate LFS owner plopped him back in a tank for some other poor soul to endure.

I suggest relocation but will be in awe if you are able to accomplish that in your beautiful epic sized tank. Please blog that effort if you undertake it!

Best,
Paul

I know the pain of catching something I. A tank. I spent 3 months catching a mantis shrimp in my last saltwater tank!

Wow just read through this whole thing and I have dreamed of doing something on this grand of a scale. Will be a couple years before I can pull something like this off so for now I shall live vicariously through your tank.

Seriously stunning work you are doing here man.
