I'd always used Mt. Dew bottles, but then I don't drink gatorade, lol.

I would just poke small holes throughout the body of the bottle. I've also killed 20-30 shrimp by forgetting the thing overnight. Stagnant water inside the thing just doesn't carry enough oxygen I don't think. The holes seemed to alleviate that problem but you still wouldn't want to go shrimping with it for more than a couple hours.

Yo Shrimp PIMP,

Will that contraption trap snails too???? If not do you have a trap for them???
I always ended up with just as many ramshorn and MTS in the trap as shrimp. Many times I'd have more snails than shrimp. I'd just stand the bottle up and they'd find their way in there, although a bit more slower than the shrimp.

The key is really the bait. It has to be something your shrimp and snails regularly swarm to or it won't work.
