Atitagain Posted March 14, 2022 Share Posted March 14, 2022 (edited) This is in a 60G tank that is hardscaped with 3 medium mopani driftwood, lots of branches/ roots, and lots of IAL. Don’t really wanna say how much time I put into this set up. Not gonna say I placed every branch and every twig but I placed every branch and every twig. (It feels like anyway) I know I keep talking about it but I can’t show you the tank because it definitely qualifies for “scapes from scraps” but no worries. The only fish in this tank is a pictus catfish and I’ve been trying to catch him for 2 days now. I try to sneak up but he always slips away. Must be the whiskers. So I came up with this. tools needed this can be done with a drinking water bottle but this fish is in the 5-6 inch range. Cut top and bottom from water bottle just bottom from container. sew together something to set trap place bottle in container and add trap cloth Bait (bloodworms today) Close lid drill holes in container to help sink release chum bait at entrance I left light on on right side of tank to encourage him to other side where I’ve turned off light and even coved front to help him relax Ok it’s set I’ll check in about an hour 👍 m sorry I don’t know who to credit for this design on this trap. I’m totally stealing it. I’ve seen it here a couple times. Edited March 14, 2022 by Atitagain 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
