yeah actually the trap that I bought, its been in my tank for like 2 months now lol and yes i do see them mainly at night but they dont like to leave the rock so i cant grab them. does anyone think they will do anything to my goby if I get one, and I was really looking forward to getting some more scooter blennies! I love them lil guys lol :P

You have to bait the trap each night.

The trap did not work at all. Don't waste your money since I already did. First night, I got the trap and watching for an hour. Yes, worms got in. In hope by tomorrow morning, I will have a full trap. Well. Not that easy.

In the morning, I got down and took the trap out of the tank. It was empty. All the worms are gone along with the bait??!!!! :) lol.

Wait, I still had patience. I thought to myself, how about trying one more nigh. Same procedure on that night. The following morning, guess what, same result :) It seems like I feed my worms in the trap ;)

Now, I just give up. Not so sure what the next step is.

One question here: is the arrowcrab safe with Rose BTA? I have one quite large Robse buble Tute Anemone in the tank. I am afraid that the arrowcrab will be the bait for the RBTA.

Your advices, please.
Thanks.

One question. Why not remove the trap when you see a few worms in it? That's the idea.

Any suggestions... please???
Try a live conch shell or two. I bought a live conch shell to keep the bristol worms down. the bristol worms come out at night to feed and the conch feed at night on the bristol worms. so you have a win win situation. the worms are eaten and the conch shells are a beautiful addition to your tank.
Its very fascinating to see the conch catching and eating the bristols. Also try adding coral shrimps and a 6 line wrasse.

Just wanted to say welcome deadeye. I don't think the original posters will get much help from this since the majority of them haven't been around since 2009 or earlier. :)
