I was surfing around the net, and found this nice little web site about moss.....yes, I am in love with Java moss, because it is just so cool!!!! On this site they have a cool way to catch SAEs. I think it is the solution to my dojo loach relocation project(top secret....well...not any more ) Here is the site=home page=http://www.aquamoss.net/=and the cool catching thing= SAE.htm" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://www.aquamoss.net/Articles/Catching-SAE.htm
Look around and see if you like it as much as I did.
(ps.if the 2nd link doesn't work, go to the home page and click on Articles.)

the link you posted does not work invalid site but will send you to aquamoss. Which is a good site.

I checked out your post oldpro. I went to your link but didn't see any article on catching fish. People look..........just not many comment sometimes.

I found the link.

SAE.htm" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://www.aquamoss.net/Articles/Catching-SAE.htm

Thats a good idea, but in my case I'd probably catch the fish I didn't want to catch. I can always catch the wrong fish with a net.

edit: For some reason you can't make it a clickable link....so just copy and paste if you want to see it.

Ok, I found the article. That's a good idea. I could have used that one time when I was trying to catch a mean & crafty tiger barb!

Haha...very interesting..
The similar technique was (and i'm sure is still being) used to catch wild animals/birds.
Just in time for me as im getting annoyed of that CAE in my tank

Thanks for sharing.

The old is new again. Is that the way the coyote tried to catch the road runner. I guess it works because the case doesn't say ACME

Now there's something strange.

It says on that page (the one covering the baited trap that is) that SAEs will demolish Java Moss in a short space of time.

In that case, how come I still have a big ball of the stuff extant in my second aquarium, thus far showing no signs whatsoever of being unduly molested by the SAEs?

Mine are showing every sign, on the other hand, of expressing a very healthy interest in the algae present.

Anyone else had SAEs munch on Java Moss?
